    From a vineyard in Rosa Brook, on the banks of Margaret River, ~20km inland planted in the mid-1970s. After a three day cold soak, we fermented this in open ‘Omni’ bins. Hand plunging them twice a day, after it was dry we left it on skins for a total of 41 days. This results in a change in the shape of the tannins, making them more structural, fine and long - Eurotannins. Then into old French barrels for maturation. After 13 months in oak this wine was bottled without any acid additions, no fining & no filtration. Aromatic, structural & complex.


    If you haven't visited, you must. A rustic, deliciously salty, native eucalypt forest framed version of Australian coastal paradise. Whatever is farmed and harvested here, both from land or sea, is inevitably healthy, fresh and richly flavoured - idiosyncratic to this corner of Australia. Merely 3 hours drive south of Western Australia's capital Perth, the Margaret River wine region is a naturally beautiful area bordered by the Indian ocean which is a major geographic influence - a natural gem for keeping the grapes balanced and not over-ripe. This region produces some of the most profound & exciting wines in the world - genuinely world class. Producers here are farming and crafting wines in all sorts of styles worthy of discovering - traditional and age worthy to avant-garde and tumbler bound. Cabernet Sauvignon here is exceptional. Look to producers such as Cullen, Pierro, Si Vintners, (some new trendy, some the highest quality etc..). Local Knowledge: Drink at Settlers Tavern - one of the most exceptional wine list in the country.
