Cabernet Sauvignon

Margaret River 2012

“My objective with this wine was to demonstrate in my own style the potential of Cabernet Sauvignon from the northern vineyards of the Margaret River wine region. This wine represents the culmination of 39 vintages working with this variety in Western Australia. Making this wine was very rewarding and I am very happy with the result.”

Grapes were hand picked at dawn and fermented in small open-top fermenters. Wild yeast from the 162 year old cellar was allowed to initiate primary fermentation, following which the wine was run straight to oak barrels for malo-lactic fermentation. Barrel selection was paramount. After minimal handling and 20 months in oak, the wine was bottled in November 2013.

RAY JORDAN WINE GUIDE 2016

Robert Bowen cabernet sauvignon 2012

Really liked this wine when tasted last year. It’s still so young with many years ahead of it. Bowen gets this stunning cabernet from Margaret River. An elegant and so refined statement of Margaret River with the clever use of oak and tannin management creating the framework to support the exceptional fruit through to a very long finish. Aromas of cigar box and subtle bay leaf with black fruits dominant. Integrated and supremely balanced. This is a quality performance.
