Full of energy and vitality with elegant shape and frame, again black and blue fruits dominate the palate. There is dimension, drive, and penetration to the finish. Specifically, there are olive notes, combined with dried thyme, cedar and quartz-like minerality that weaves through to powdery graphite tannins.
"Wow. Silky smooth aromas of red berries, grey minerality (granite, graphite etc) and breaths of oceans air whispered about. The palate is exactly as the nose promises, elegant and refined. Length of flavour is where this really kicks into gear, extending seamlessly across the palate, lingering and swirling in its profile. Beautiful, classical cabernet from a cool vintage. What a pleasure this is." - 97 points Erin Larkin, 2022 Halliday Wine Companion May 2021
"From a cool year, this is perfumed and intense. With buoyant acidity, the silky, cedar-edged cassis, mulberry, blueberry and red cherry fruit gathers impetus through the palate. Notes of sage, anise, bitter chocolate, terracotta and gravel lend savoury and textural nuance. Powdery cocoa tannins and vibrant acidity tease out the finish. Poised, but lingering, medium-bodied and elegant, it is drinking beautifully now, but will go some distance."- 96 points Sarah Ahmed, Decanter Premium
“2% of Malbec is included in this cracking Margaret River Cabernet. 22 months in total in a mix of barrels and barriques. There has never been any doubt over the stunning quality of the Art Series Chardonnay, but it has taken longer for this wine to reach its current stratospheric levels. Indeed, the Leeuwin reds are one of the big improvers in the region over recent decades. Deep purples here. Black fruits dominate with plums and mulberries. Spices, dry herbs and some gravelly notes. A wine that is concentrated and with deceptive grip, but a wine that is still exhibiting elegance. The balance between fine acidity, silky tannins and impressive length is knife-edge. This is a quality Margaret River Cabernet.” - 95 points Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot March 2021
