Wilyabrup Valley Margaret River Alter Ego 2018
This product is COMING SOON.
Original founders of Margaret River vineyards established their own appellation scheme in order to protect the Margaret River wines from cross regional blending. In 1999, Dr John Gladstones proposed the recognition of sub-regions to formally acknowledge that the relatively large Margaret River region contains several distinct micro-climates and soil variations. Wilyabrup, for example, is acknowledged as the most ideally suited sub-region for growing cabernet sauvignon grapes. Due to it's northerly location in the region the cool Southerly Ocean breeze is tempered by the warmer Indian Oceans airflow. Tall Karri Trees also protect fruit from the cool winds and it's this combination of elements which ensure the fruit has enough warmth to ripen each year.
Our growers in Wilyabrup tend to vines planted in the 1970's and 80's. This is an ideal place to grow clean and pure fruit for our Icon Alter Ego red blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec.
Fruit was destemmed, hand sorted, crushed and fermented in small stainless steel fermenters. The Cabernet Sauvignon portions remained on skins for 35 days for added tannin integration. Transferred into 50% new French oak barriques where it remained for 18 months.
A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 15% Malbec.
