From the precious Margaret River soils of Cape Leeuwin, to the balmy, richly endowed vineyards at Cape Howe, harvests of the finest fruit are brought to the estate wineworks near Mount Barker and assembled into a range of distinctly West Australian wines with an unparalleled reputation for quality and consistency. An intensely aromatic accord of Cabernet and Merlot, in an augustly brambleberried, structured and ebullient West Australia styling.
Parcels of Cabernet and Merlot are collated on the basis of slow, even ripening, clean and expressive, optimal flavour development without disease pressure. Fruit is harvested at optimum ripeness and held for a term of cold maceration. Twelve days of ferment are treated to daily pumpovers and juice aeration, extracting excellent colour and tannin. Batches are pressed off skins for malolactic and a year's maturation in a selection of seasoned and new French oak, to be followed by assemblage into the final wine, with a view to achieving a soft and elegant style of Great Southern Cabernet Merlot.
TASTING NOTES
Dark, rich plum colour, vibrant purple hue. Intense berry fruits, lifted spice and savoury oak. An initial burst of dense, dark ripe berries, subtle plum characters carry through the palate, combining subtle toasted oak, powdery tannins and a long, rich, fruit filled finish. Perfect with lamb, fusions of pork and veal medleys or piquant eggplant recipes.

More About West Cape Howe Winery
It is the quality of the Great Southern region and the combination of skill and artistry between viticulture and winemaking that makes drinking West Cape Howe wines a truly memorable experience
Within the Great Southern wine region is a collection of five sub regions, each with their own unique topographical qualities. These regions include Denmark, Albany, Porongurup, Mount Barker and Frankland River. With a typical maritime climate, the coastal towns of Denmark and Albany experience relatively mild summer temperatures and cool wet winters. These conditions enable fruit to ripen slowly and gradually, thus developing subtle layers of fruit intensity and are well suited to the earlier ripening varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot. Further inland to Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River, the days are slightly warmer, and the nights are cooler (with a higher risk of frosts). With greater sunshine hours, these sub-regions are where Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz varieties thrive. West Cape Howe»
