Description

Woodlands ‘Margaret’ is sourced entirely from the Woodlands Vineyard. The Cabernet Sauvignon portion comes from a slope on the south of Woodlands that wraps around a 90-degree radius from east to north. The fruit on this slope receives a great deal of direct sunlight from morning to mid-afternoon, leading to rich full-bodied wines. The Merlot and Malbec plots that make up the remainder of ‘Margaret’ come from Woodlands’ west-facing slope of deep loam soil. This slope receives the most direct afternoon sunlight at Woodlands, and produces more spicy exotic fruit characters in the finished wine. Following harvest, the fruit was destemmed, hand sorted, crushed and fermented in small stainless steel fermenters. Following fermentation, the Cabernet Sauvignon portions remained on skins for 25 days. The wine was then matured in French oak (43% new) for 17 months. This vinage of Margaret’ is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 6% Malbec. This wine is very deep crimson in colour. The nose is very lifted and complex -displaying an array of violet and lifted garden herbs, red berries, and vanillin oak notes. The palate is classic ‘Margaret’ – with mouth filling ripe red fruits combining with cassis and anise, overlaying a slate-like structure. The finish is supple yet mineral, with a lingering freshness.
