Cabernet Sauvignon | Wine Butler Price From $36.00
The 2022 Marri Wood Park Cabernet Sauvignon is a true expression of place and time - a beautiful translucent deep blackberry in the glass. On the nose there are classic cabernet notes of cassis, new leather, tobacco and cedar wood shavings, but in a light and lifted style. The mouthfeel is silky and smooth, full of bright blackcurrant, red cherry, piquant cranberry notes, all backed up with hints of rich chocolate and smoke. Very finely grained tannins, along with a beautiful fresh acid line will lend this wine to longevity. One to savour.
The fruit is picked from a biodynamically farmed single block on the family property, and is fermented in a combination of clay amphora, and French oak barrels with a portion left on its skins for a year.
The Australian Financial Review - Max Allen
"As there is no other red grapes like merlot and malbec at Marri Wood Park to add to the cabernet to bring extra complexity or modulate structure (as is so often done in Margaret River), Peterkin uses techniques such as leaving some of the wine on skins for six months in amphora before draining it into barrel. There's no shortage of complexity here; fabulously intense pure black currant flavour, fine, grippy, tightly wound tannins." Max Allen, December 2022
