Vinaceous, Svengali, Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret RiverVinaceous
Margaret River, WA
The Svengali typifies classic Margaret River cabernet; lush, rich and deep purple in colour with bright hues, the aroma leaps from the glass with violets and black berry and mocha notes. Not unlike a Rorschach Image, people will see different flavours across the palate; some will find ripe fleshy black currants and cassis, others will find crunchy sour cherries; but both complement the overall palate with intensity, weight, structure and texture.
Along with lip-smacking tannins and fine oak nuances, the Svengali can easily be enjoyed on immediate opening or be cellared for up to 10 years and is absolutely a must with roast lamb, chargrilled rib-eye and/or array of cheeses; whatever your choice, the Raconteur will always entertain and command attention!
Hand-picked at optimum ripeness levels, pressed and open fermented (with 10% whole bunches). the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit comes from mature Wilyabrup Margaret River vineyards. 25% new French oak barriques. 14 – 16 months maturation.
The wine is matured in oak and selected by Vinaceous Winemakers Mike Kerrigan and Nick Stacy for finishing, fining, blending and bottling by Vinaceous.
