As treacherous as it is beautiful, Western Australia’s rugged southwest coastline is littered with shipwrecks – the wreck of the Ringbolt being one of them. Sunk in the late 1800s in what is now known as Ringbolt Bay, located on the southern tip of the Margaret River wine region, adjacent to Cape Leeuwin. It is at Ringbolt Bay where the Southern and Indian Oceans merge and their invigorating waters lap at the edge of the Margaret River wine region.

About the Vineyard

The grapes for this wine are grown on a small selection of sites, most being around the Margaret River’s flagship Wilyabrup sub-region, close to the Indian Ocean.  The soil types, either sandy or laterite gravel soils, both restrict vine yields. There are a range of aspects and soil types through our vineyard sites, and these variances and selective blending provide Ringbolt with much of its complexity.

Wine Production

The growing season started slowly after a wetter than normal winter that extended throughspring and into summer with accompanying cool conditions. This long, even ripening period was perfect for the development of fine and complex flavors in the grapes. The result is a delicious and very classic Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River.

Tasting Notes

Medium crimson to ruby red in color. The nose offers layers of intensely flavored ripe forest berries infused with tobacco leaf and cassis, with a hint of brooding cedar oak. The medium bodied palate displays an abundance of bright berries with a spicy mid palate freshness. A fine expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from a cool vintage that yielded soft luscious tannins and a long fresh finish. Enjoy now or cellar for eight to ten years.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with ribeye steak topped with chargrilled shrimp; or roasted root vegetables, brown rice and caramelised onions.
