Made with certified organic grapes, this is a dry, savoury red that from our experience, goes very well with cheese! No oak used, this is aged in cement vats to let the fruit do the talking. A percentage of every bottle sold goes to support protection of oceans and coastlines too!

Clothes maketh not the man; judge the wines on what’s in the bottle, not by means of preconceived ideas.

Seriously impressive! This is a classic Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon is medium to full bodied in structure with a powerful palate and fine grained tannins. The nose is displaying berry with dark chocolate undertones. The palate also displays elegance and freshness, with a beautiful balance of fruit and oak flavours, the result of 14 months oak maturation.
The nose is full of red fruits, mostly cherries and cassis, with flavours of vanilla, oakiness, and some hints of chocolate. This follows through in the taste which is rich, well balanced, mellow with spices in the beginning, very smooth tanins surrounded with mature red fruits, vanilla and chocolate, and a hint of orange in the end. Very long and smooth after taste.
