The highly regarded flagship wine from Gralyn Estate; rich, full-bodied and elegant. Dense, dark crimson in colour, perfumed with blackcurrant, violets, cedar and spice. The palate is well balanced, intense and powerful, with a core of sweet fruit and finely textured tannins supporting a long persistent finish. As with all our great Cabernets, this wine shows the potential in its youth to reward careful cellaring. A limited quantity of this outstanding wine has now been released.

Accolades “Very youthful for its age with lovely vibrancy of berry aromas and medicinal notes. Typical cool climate cabernet palate that has masses of very fine tannin.” 4.5 Stars Winestate Magazine, New Releases, July/August 2015
“Cabernet from this small vineyard has been one of the best from the region. This one is another cracker, displaying beautiful perfumed scented notes on the nose with blackberry and leafy violet and cedary characters. It’s still a very tightly woven red with the fruit and oak interaction excellent. Classic cabernet structure with firm tannins and fine-grained oak. A wine that really does need time in the cellar to bring out its best.” Cellar 20 years 95/100 Ray Jordan, West Australian Wine Guide 2014
