Jilyara 'The Williams Block' Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (Margaret River, Western Australia) "...dark berry, herbs, chocolate..."
JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 5 STAR WINERY
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.
"24yo vines, the blend including 8.5% malbec and 5.5% petit verdot. A rich and luscious, utterly seductive medium to full-bodied wine. The tannins are somewhere there, because the texture and structure give the wine harmony." - 97 Points, James Halliday
