Bottle 3667 of 733 dozen. Brambly cassis pastille, pomegranate and ripe summer raspberry. This is supple, bouncy, beautiful and long, with elegance and harmony to spare. Glorious expression of cabernet from a cool and aromatic year.

"This is a gorgeous, classy wine. A traditional Bordeaux blend with the intention that there will usually be five varieties in the mix but for this vintage, the team did not believe that the Merlot reached the high standards they demand. Consequently, it is a blend of four grapes – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, all sourced from their ‘Wills Domain’ Vineyard in Yallingup. The Petit Verdot stood out so much this vintage that it plays a more dominant role than expected.

A deep red with notes of spices, red fruits, tobacco leaf, cassis, leather and more on the nose. There is lovely balance and obvious elegance. This is a wine with serious length, and silky, but abundant tannins at the end. Vibrant in style, there is so much to love. This wine is surely a ten-year proposition. Great stuff."
