97 Points - James Halliday - Exceptional crimson-purple; Julian Langworthy has a rare touch, particularly with cabernet and chardonnay, an unlikely couple outside Margaret River, and even within it when Julian's wines are on show. This has the elegance and symmetry of Bordeaux in good vintages had before they were all pumped up on Parkeresque steroids.

96 Points - Stuart McCloskey

A wonderful nose bursting with blackcurrant leaf, eucalyptus and cassis. Medium to full bodied, beautifully polished with fine, silky tannins. The black fruit is ripe, crisp and coats the mouth though with elegance. This is a world class cabernet sauvignon, which would put many ‘top’ 2013 Bordeaux to shame. Delicious now but would certainly reward 5+ years in the cellar.

Producer

Deep Woods Estate wines have definitely stood out from the crowd, although we have struggled to source their stunning wines as they are simply rarely available to the outside world – the majority of bottles are scooped up at the cellar door or sold through their domestic mailing list. But, we tried and tried until we received a small parcel, which are delighted to share with you all. Deep Woods Estate is now firmly fixed in our portfolio of great Australia wines and we are so thrilled to be in a position to offer an annual allocation.

Region

The Margaret River is situated in South Western Australia, about 200 kilometres south of Perth. This area may grow less than 5% of the country’s grapes but it produces a very significant proportion of the country’s best wine. The climate is Mediterranean, meaning that it is warm enough to make some brilliant Bordeaux blends and Cabernets, yet cool enough for elegant Chardonnays and Semillion.  Margaret River is made up of mainly smaller, boutique producers with over 215 vineyards across the region. One of our favourite producers is from this region; Stella Bella wines. We can highly recommend Suckfizzle Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon which is made from grapes from a single small vineyard in Augusta, Suckfizzle.
