The 2013 Morus Cabernet Sauvignon is one the finest cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon from the heart of Margaret River. A single vineyard selection with plantings in 1978 and 1982. These fully mature and majestic vines are some of the oldest in the region, planted by the second wave of winegrowing pioneers. Fruit expression from this site includes violets, cassis, and mulberry. Indeed, mulberry is a very attractive fruit character which is a unique part of the terroir expression of Margaret River Cabernet. This wine is named to reflect this unique mulberry character – Morus australis being the genus and species name for the mulberry tree. Mulberry, cassis and cocoa flavours mingle with exotic spices, anise and a hint of aromatic violet. This wine has extraordinary fruit character displaying depth and poise. Elegantly structured with fine, silky ripe tannins, this wine is to be cherished and is destined to evolve over time. A finely detailed wine.

‘A wall of flavour abuts a wall of tannin. This is a three-course dinner in liquid form, its density and architectural style both cut from the finest of cloths and sprinkled with perfume. Naming blackcurrant, gravel, cloves and dark chocolate doesn't do any kind of justice. We're much better off simply calling it as it is: a brilliant wine.’
