We are honoured to offer you this Margaret River MacAnn Cabernets, named after our founders Mac & Ann and inspired by Aunty May of ex Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in Bordeaux.
Aunty May is why we planted the varieties to produce this blend in 1997. The blend comprises Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Click here to read more about our story with Aunty May.
The fermentation was in a combination of open and closed static tanks and was completed in the tank before being pressed off skins at dryness after 12-18 days of skin contact.
The wine was then matured for 18 months in about one third new French oak from the forests of Allier and the centre of France.
"There’s such a gentleness and coolness to this blend: no details sent but the back label says 50/31/19% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/cabernet franc 19. It’s supple and refreshing with currants, blackberries and little pops of blueberries. As is the Margaret River way, it’s medium bodied with raw silk tannins, woodsy spices and some sweetness, yet ends up a terrific drink." - Jane Faulkner
