Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
A bench mark wine from a remarkable year, carefully cellared, and now re-released as a Museum wine from the owners' Private Collection.
“I tasted it, and hyperbole such as stunning and supreme came to mind. Has it all with a sophistication and style that you get from the best Margaret River cabernets. Long, supple and velvety with fine tannins running a delicate thread through the mass of concentration. You could drink this now or cellar it for many years. A great and complex wine that will rank among the best yet.
Ray Jordan - The West Australian 2002
“A densely packed immense palate with chewy, ripe fruit oak and tannin all intermingling in full blooded show style.”
James Halliday - Wine Companion 2003
“The impenetrable, blue/red coloured Gralyn Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 offers intense, ultra-ripe Cabernet and new oak aromatics in the fresh cherry and mocha spectrum along with a subtle hint of complexing leather/game, leading to a pure, focused, wonderfully balanced palate with each element in its place. There’s a ripe core of pulpy, sweet fruit encased in a fine, powdery layer of tannins and some warm, oak resinous notes on the lingering finish. A brilliant Cabernet that will score even higher with time.
Robert Walters - The Australian Review of Wines 2002
