2018 Discovery Cabernet Sauvignon

Brooding red fruits | Engaging tannins

$25.00 Members $20.00

A classic and unhindered expression of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon, sculpted tannins and lifted red berry perfumes. A paragon of personality, purpose and approachability for those who enjoy soft tannins, succulent red fruits and simply love wine. Aromas of cassis, red cherries and bright red fruit underpinned by a seamless palate of raspberries, plum skin, bright red fruits and silky, textured tannin on the finish.

AWARDS

95 pts Halliday Wine Companion ".... The nose here is tempting to say the least – cassis, raspberry and fields of violets and sage. The palate follows obediently, the acidity being the last thing that swoops in and cleans everything up …. What a gorgeous wine. Testament to the year, the hands and the vineyards. Ridiculous price.” Erin Larkin.

92 pts Suckling “There’s a very fresh red-fruit nose here with raspberries and red cherries, as well as plums on offer. The palate is ripe and richly flavored, yet remains on a fresh red-fruit stance. Smooth finish.”

92 pts Walsh “A very good vintage for reds in Margaret River. Very good Cabernet.”
