The 2018 Woodlands Wilyabrup Valley blend comprises 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot. It has matured in French oak for 14 months, where 5% of the barrels used were new.
The colour is a very dark red, with crimson hue. Exuberant aromas explode from the glass. The nose features dark red fruits and mixed berries, violet and sage, with a hint of toasty French oak. The palate is seamless and integrated, and very dense and powerful. Waves of soft ripe fruits combine with the array of ripe velvety tannins, finishing with lively acidity.
