Embrased by two oceans, the Indian and the Southern, the Margaret River wine region enjoys a temperate, maritime climate providing wonderful conditions for the growing of distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon.
Finely structured, beautifully balanced and showing great harmony of characters, Ringbolt Cabernet Sauvignon combines elegance with power. This is a delicious and very varietal Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River endorsed with a swag of medals over the previous vintages.
Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"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. Matured for 9 months in new French oak hogsheads and barriques (4%), balance in one year and older American and French oak barriques.
Crimson in colour. The nose is classic Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River. Layers of intensely flavoured ripe forest berries infused with tobacco leaf, blackcurrant, seaspray and a hint of brooding cedar oak. The medium-bodied palate revels in bright berries and a spicy mid-palate freshness. A fine expression of varietal definition from a cool vintage that yields soft luscious tannins and a long, fresh finish."
93/100 Steve Leszczynski, Q Wine (2021 Vintage)
"Classic Cabernet from the get-go. Sourced from a variety of sites around the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, this is super drinking for the asking price. Decant to drink now or hold, either way, you're winning. Expressive and layered with all things Cabernet. Be consumed by blackberries and cassis, Bay leaf and thyme, leather, black olives and cigar box. Drink to eight years+"
91/100 James Suckling (2021 Vintage)
"A fresh and youthful cabernet with aromas of blackcurrants, red licorice, rosemary, graphite and tobacco leaves on the nose. Medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. Excellent freshness and drinkability. Drink or hold."
