The Wine: “Yallingup is our stomping ground and where the world’s greatest Cabernet and Cabernet blends are being grown! It’s deliciously warm but never hot, with the amazing dual influence of the Indian Ocean and Geographe Bay. In our new ‘Cabernets’ we have used our own beloved Sheoak Cabernet and added some Merlot from the Simpson property belonging to our neighbours, with whom we’re lucky enough to share the amazing valley.” Alana & Julian Langworthy

Big bright fruits on the nose that are very attractive. Fine herbs on the edge and an edge of cedar. The palate is glossy, but delivered beautiful structure and layers of savoury complexity. This is one of the most exciting new labels of an iconic wine region!
