Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

A fuller structured palate this year where elegance is still the dominant theme with some jubyness yet also feels dry and dusty. Ripe mulberry and blueberries are the predominant flavour with baking spice fine-grained graphite tannins and a long pencilly finish. A bold expression that will need time to flourish. 86 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec.


Awards and Reviews

"A hedonistic red of elegance and refinement that delivers strong and worthy regional character. Fresh and bright, tightly wound and succulent, this is a hedonistic red of elegance and refinement that delivers strong and worthy regional character. Displaying characters of red and blue fruits, sage and bay leaf notes along with woody spice, there’s an overriding feeling of freshness, supported by beautiful tension and a great extension of flavour. A wonderful expression."

-Top 25, The West Australian Good Food Guide

"This is predominantly cabernet but smaller percentages of petit verdot, cabernet franc and malbec contribute. Powerful and controlled cabernet displaying a lot of the black fruit character of this part of Margaret River. On the nose you get a terrific mix of bay leaf, black olive and varietal blackcurrant. There's a pronounced oyster shell minerality bursting through supported by a chalky tannin feel. Integrated and vibrant, it's a wine of energy and drive."

-Ray Jordan, 96 pts

"Lovely, lifted aromas of bramble, dried herbs, blackberry, menthol, spice and blackcurrant. Classic Margaret River cab aromatics. The palate is mid-weight, beautifully balanced and pure. Cassis, mulberry, blackberry, cedar and wild thyme are all at play. The oak is creamy, structured and frames the fruit superbly and the acidity delivers freshness and drive. Tannins are granular, layered and savoury. A very complete cabernet."

-The Real Review, 95 pts

"As usual, a tiptop Parterre with enticing florals giving way to mulberries and boysenberries, dried herbs, choc-mint and more besides. It’s medium-bodied and wonderfully savoury with powdery tannins and great length. And it will age gracefully.” 

-Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, 95 pts

"Beautifully fragrant red showing aromas of currants, plums, wild cherries, chocolate, hazelnuts and rosemary. Soft and creamy, with polished, very fine tannins and a medium to full body. Long and elegant. 86% cabernet sauvignon, 6% petit verdot, 5% cabernet franc and 3% malbec. Drink or hold."

-James Suckling, 94 pts
