2013 Suckfizzle Cabernet Sauvignon

Background

The Suckfizzle Cabernet Sauvignon is a single vineyard wine and as such expresses the specific vineyard site in each season. Over time and vintages the wines become an archive, or a chronology of the events of the seasons, and capture the uniqueness of the site, allowing all to witness the development of the wine’s style and personality. From Augusta in the very south of the Margaret River region, the wine is a classic, complex and unique example of Margaret River’s signature regional Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting Note

Apperance

Deep red.

Aroma

The nose is strikingly perfumed with the emphasis on red fruit, opening up with cherry, raspberry and a violet lift. Savoury forest and earthy elements combine with a certain saltiness from the Southern Ocean. The background expression of subtle vanillin from selected Tronçais French oak barrels integrates well with the bright fruit flavours.

Palate

Medium bodied in the mouth, finely balanced with a persistence of flavour, showing the elegance of this cooler vineyard site. This wine’s classic velvety, soft tannins are supple and silky, providing a linear transition from the front to the back of the palate, finishing with a salivating acidity. This vintage with more fruit from the vineyard’s older block is showing a more structural mouthfeel and weight, with an abundance of red fruit from the younger block carrying through on to the palate.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon
