Willoughby Park Ironrock Kalgan River Albany Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
96pts for this "exceptional" Great Southern Cabernet ... don't miss it!
Michael Ng is the winemaker at Five Red Star Willoughby Park, located in WA’s remote Great Southern Region. As Halliday notes... “The Kalgan River vineyard, under the ownership of Willoughby Park, produces premium fruit with amazing concentration of flavour, offering true varietal definition and producing wines that speak of the vineyard”. Here’s an exquisite example – a stunning 96-point pure Cabernet. "Hand-picked and sorted, destemmed, small batch ferments, extended post-ferment maceration, matured in French barriques (38% new). An exceptional Cabernet with multiple layers of fruit, tannins and oak sliding against, around and through each other as you taste and retaste the wine. Its greater degree of ripeness and more new oak than its sibling make comparisons invidious: each has its own strength, here a luscious complexity... 96 points” (Halliday).
