Description

Winner of Best Wine and Best Margaret River Cabernet at the 2019 James Halliday Cabernet Challenge & Wine of Show, Best Red Wine and Best Cabernet Sauvignon at the 2019 Margaret River Wine Show.

Anyone familiar with Margaret River will know that the region commands a very supreme price point for its wines. This is primarily due to the outstanding quality consistently coming out of there, with a lot of Australia's top producers calling the place their home. Ringbolt have long produced great quality wines at a pricepoint accessible to everyone, which is not a common thing to see. The 2018 vintage was another great one, with a long even ripening period helping to create the concentrated and complex Cabernet characters. This multi award winning wine is very approachable now, but will reward with careful cellaring through 10+ years.

Smells

Ripe blackcurrant, cassis, tobacco and blueberry, with an underlying character of nutmeg and vanilla – courtesy of new oak maturation in French and American barriques.

Tastes

Full bodied, with dark blackberry and cassis abound and a whiff of eucalyptus. There are dashes of chocolate helping to round out the chalky tannin structure and to support the long, long finish.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.

This is a serious young wine which requires a bit of breathing and a decent meal e.g beef/venison. It has a fair amount of tannins and depth and tastes like it needs a few years before it will fully open up. It is rich, complex, and relatively approachable now, but if you have a cellar... put some in and lock the door.
