Description

This Western Australian Back Vintage Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 has classic varietal notes of blackcurrant and red fruits with lifted mint. A rich and full palate with flavours of forest berries and beautiful oak integration after 12 months in brand new French oak barrels. Smooth finish with smooth tannin structure.

The producer of this wine is a very small family operation with very little retail presence other than in restaurants and via cellar door. The family has shifted recently from wine making to truffle growing in the Manjimup area. They have never gone down the road of wine shows or rating by James Halliday preferring to keep it local and produce wines of exceptional quality. All wines produced are in small batches with love, care and respect for the grape.

Comments from Our Wine Buyer: This Western Australian Back Vintage Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is from a very small producer located in the heart of Manjimup Western Australia. They have ceased making wines and are instead taking over the world with truffles grown on the property. This wine has been in storage for a number of years and we were lucky to get hold of some. The wine was matured in brand new French oak for 12 months and has full and rich flavors and beautiful oak integration. It is one of the best Cabernet’s from WA with age that I have found. Please enjoy this rich and full wine in the heart of winter. A bargain at $15.00 per bottle. My Score 93/100 Gold Medal.
