Jilyara 'Honeycomb Corner' Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 (Margaret River, Western Australia)



A family-owned and operated vineyard in Wilyabrup, Margaret River. Planted in 1996 by the Cotterell family, the nine hectare vineyard grows predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, but also Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.  The fruit is managed by hand and owner Craig Cotterell does all the vineyard work himself to ensure a sound and disease-free vineyard. Craig has managed every aspect of the vineyard since the beginning and strives to grow grapes of superior quality. Wines are made by Kate Morgan.

"85/14/1% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/petit verdot. Up to 30 days on skins, matured 8 months in french oak (5% new). Cassis, cocoa, raspberry pip and blood plum. The joy of cabernet is in the shape of the tannins: without it, all is lost. Finely tuned tannins hold the fruit in check, the overall impression is that this is a savoury little number. All things in place. " - 91 points, Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion
