Cracka Review

We just love Cab Sauv from the Margaret River, and this one is a rich and sultry minx that shows bright, sweet blackcurrants and minty hints on the nose, together with a kiss of toasty oak. The palate is full-bodied and sumptuous with succulent dark berry and cherry flavours, crunchy tannins and a sweetly fruited plummy finish. It would match brilliantly with Beef Wellington.

Winemaker's Notes

Killerby maintains its small winery essence with most of its winemaking techniques and philosophies remaining the same since it was first established in 1973. The wine is made using small batch techniques, highest quality of French oak barriques and meticulous attention to winemaking detail.

Vineyard Notes: Our winemakers carefully select grapes from several sites in the Margaret River region.

Harvesting Notes: Fruit was harvested in the early morning.

Winemaking Notes: Grapes immediately crushed to static fermenters for ferment. Pump-overs occurred 4 times a day for 8 days before gentle pressing, malolactic fermentation and then the wine was racked to a range of new and mature oak. During maturation, the blend was periodically racked and returned to oak for 16 months prior to filtration and bottling.

Colour: Dark crimson.

Nose: Intense Margaret River characters of blackcurrant, ripe berries, sage and bay leaf.

Palate: Opulent blackberry and sweet plums, long and satisfying with integrated French oak and structural chewy tannins.

Cellaring Notes: 5+ years.

Food Pairing: Roasted fillet of beef served with a Cabernet sauce.

Alc/vol: 14.0%

2014 Killerby Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
Matured in new French oak for 14 months. Bright crimson-purple; it's a toss-up deciding between the length or the depth as the most impressive part of the wine. It has that layered complexity of the region that is sometimes soft, as it is here, but tannins are still very evident as they should be.
