The 2003 growing season in the Swan Valley made making premium wines easy. Cooler than usual temperatures allowed for a slow and even ripening period with fruit achieving full flavour and ripeness.
The Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested prior to storms and so survived unscathed and in good condition.

Bouquet: Displays dark forest fruit characters coupled with nutty oak derived spices.
Palate: Silky tannins and intense black fruits offer depth and elegance.
Cellaring: This wine may be enjoyed now but cellaring for 5 – 8 years with be rewarded.
