Margaret River, Western Australia
Hallmark Arlewood Cabernet; captivating at first sip.
The Wine Pilot
93 / 100
“Like so many of the ‘19s this has taken a little time to come around, but the wait has been worth it. The cooler vintage had some challenges but for those prepared to wait the results are very good. This was left on skins for 21 days before spending 24 months in a mix of oaks that included 35% new French. It’s a medium bodied Cabernet with a leafy graphite and slightly minerally oyster shell character neatly integrated into a very long finish.”
The Wine Front
92 / 100
It’s fairly slender I guess but then it’s also lengthy. It tastes of currants and violets, leathers and bay leaves, and while it doesn’t knock you between the eyes with the first sip, it creeps up on you, and grows on you, and ends up generally impressing, its chocolatey tones rising as it grows.
Halliday Wine Companion 2023
“Light in colour and decidedly red in every way; redcurrants, cherries, pomegranate and red licorice. In the mouth, the wine is elegant and mid weight, without a powerful mid palate. Soft and pretty: claret is back, baby.”
