The making of an icon...

Luminosa Cabernet Sauvignon truly stands out amongst the best Cabernets in Australia. An iconic wine that has gained worldwide recognition for its quality, unique flavours, and distinctive character. It has been placed within the top 0.5% of wines in The Real Review's Wine Classification of Australia, solidifying its status as a truly exceptional wine.

But what makes Luminosa Cabernet Sauvignon so special? It all starts with the location. The grapes are grown in Southern Margaret River, in the Boodjidup valley, an iconic zone that produces some of the best wines in the region. Our Luminosa vineyard has a meso-climate perfectly suited to enhancing vine balance and producing exceptional fruit. Excellent top soils and free draining sub-soils allow for dry growing Cabernet to moderate vigour.

Furthermore, Luminosa vineyard is situated at the head of the Boodjidup Valley, slightly elevated and exposed to the predominant south westerly winds that bring in the influence of the sea air. This maritime influence, coupled with the region's cooler climate, is perfect for flavour development.

We farm our Luminosa Vineyard with an attention to detail unlike no other to embraces the pristine natural environment. The winemakers and viticulturists adopt a hands-on farming, organic principles approach, which results in wines that are distinctively Southern Margaret River and uniquely Luminosa. 

In the winery Luminosa wines are wild-fermented, and have no adds, resulting in fruit purity, elegance, and complexity. Each vintage of Luminosa Cabernet Sauvignon is a reflection of the land, the climate, and the winemaker's passion for producing the finest wine possible. This is one of the most remarkable aspects about Luminosa Cabernet Sauvignon, its ability to reflect the character of each vintage.

In conclusion, Luminosa Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine that embodies the very best of Southern Margaret River. It is an iconic wine that has gained worldwide recognition for its quality and unique character. At Luminosa, we embrace the natural environment and utilise organic principles to produce wines that are truly exceptional. So, if you are looking for a wine that proudly sits amongst the best Cabernets in Australia, look no further.
