Dry Reds

2014 Happs Cabernet Sauvignon

This very noble variety from Bordeaux has found a natural home here in Margaret River. From the first plantings in the region it was clear that this variety belonged here and the district now produces some of the country’s most regarded Cabernet Sauvignons in the world. Great Cabernet is about rich red berry and blackcurrant fruit flavours with strong and obvious tannin throughout. 

AROMA: Dark fruit, black currant, black jubes, tomato leaf and cedar aromas with hints of green plum, choc mint, eucalypt and some smoky oak.

FLAVOUR: A full bodied wine with concentrated fruit flavour and good structure. The flavours are of black currant, red currant, black jubes, and maraschino cherry with hints of black olive and bitter chocolate. The palate is tight with good acidity and noticeable gravelly tannins. A wine that will undoubtedly reward those who cellar.

VARIETY: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

ANALYSIS: Alc/Vol:14.3%, Titratable Acidity:6.2 g/L, pH: 3.84, Residual Sugar < 0.2 g/L.
