Nocturne SV Cabernet Sauvignon 'Sheoak Vineyard' 2020Regular price $51.00
“The Chardonnay and Cabernet releases this year are from 2020 which was a weird grape growing year,” says Julian. “Warmer than 2019 or 2017 which were cool, but these retain great elegance and class with beautifully expressive fruit characters and ripe tannins on the Cabernet.”
2020 was – in so many ways - a bit of a prick but in the Yallingup Hills at the lovely Sheoak Vineyard we kept it real , kept it clean, kept our distance from one and other and made it epic.
The Sheoak vineyard makes expressive, medium-bodied, silkily structured wines. Dark-fruit flavours and high notes of cassis and warm spice frame this slightly more brooding release of the Nocturne SV. While it’s amazingly accessible on release, this wine would love three to six years’ further maturation to really make it shine.
