Margaret River is Australia’s Bordeaux. The similar growing climate has inspired winemakers there to plant Bordeaux grapes and blend them as they do in Bordeaux. This wine then is a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. During a tasting Val and I both remarked on its structure, this is a wine that leans more to old world style. With acids and tannins in tight balance it allows the fruit flavours plenty of time to develop on the palate, revealing blackberry, blueberry, green bell pepper, and plenty of toasty wood.
