Named after the 350 caves that were formed about a million years ago along an old limestone ridge, Caves Road runs through the heart of the Margaret River region and the many unique microclimates that are ideal for growing a number of classic grape varieties.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this wine are hand-harvested from vineyards in the north of the Margaret River region, in the Wilyabrup district, which are influenced by Indian Ocean breezes: slightly warmer than the Southern Ocean breezes affecting vineyards to the south. The grapes are harvested by hand and fermented in stainless steel tanks, the components were aged for ten months in a combination of new and used French oak barrels prior to blending. Classic blackcurrant aromas greet the nose along with a touch of bay, secondary chocolate and cedar, the palate is velvety with good fruit through to the finish.
