“A beautifully harmonious Margaret River blend that marries rich red fruits to a refined feel.”

The Woodlands 2017 Wilyabrup Valley blend is comprised of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 6% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and has been matured in French oak for 14 months. Bright and brambly - forged with an array of Jaffa, stewed plums and dark fruits. The palate is defined by a bouquet garni of savoury acidity, embracing the wine. Graphite and dusty cacao tannins speak of the land, finishing with a silky defined edge. The Wilyabrup Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot displays elegant and delicate structures and flavours, with a vibrancy and intensity of colour.

"Boysenberry, mulberry, violet, slight youthful char, liquorice, spicy biscuits. It’s medium-bodied, so brightly lit and well-defined, a coolness and distinct ‘minerality’ to the acidity, precise and tight, fine graphite tannin, and an effortlessly long finish. This is one out of the box.”
