Grown in one the best Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Margaret Valley, The Cherubino Cabernet Sauvignon is made by acclaimed winemaker, Larry Cherubino. Aromas of red earth with a compote of berries and fine nuances of dried bay leaf. There is a freshness to this wine that is the perfect foil to the dusty earthy notes. The oak is gentle with soft tannins and spice notes with a long complex finish. Superb with slow cooked lamb or BBQ ribs.
Expert Reviews & Awards
"Fruit sourced from Wilyabrup sites so it is full of cassis, mulberries, licorice and violets. A lovely start. A vibrancy throughout with finely chiseled tannins and bright acidity working across the medium-bodied palate. Approachable now and will reward the patient." 95 points
Halliday Wine Companion, August 2020 (JF). — 95 Points
The grapes were hand harvested, transported to the winery and cooled overnight. Maceration lasted for 6 weeks with minimal pump overs and temperatures were held between 12-27C. The wine was pressed to tank and allowed to settle for 7 days prior to oak maturation.
Drink now or cellar for 15 and beyond.

About Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in many of the world’s wine regions, such as the Napa Valley in California, Hawke’s Bay in New Zealand, Colchagua Valley in Chile and Stellenbosch in South Africa. In France, Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic grape of the Haut Medoc, in Bordeaux, and it makes some of the world’s most highly prized and age-worthy wines. The red wines of Bordeaux are mostly a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. They are incredible wines, known throughout history as being the pinnacle of red wine making. In Australia, there are pockets of excellent Cabernet Sauvignon growing in regions such as the Eden Valley or the Adelaide Hills. However, Cabernet Sauvignon really excels in the Yarra Valley, the Margaret River and the Coonawarra. Interestingly, there tends to be a maritime influence in the top Cabernet Sauvignon wine regions. Viticulturalists say that this keeps the vineyards cool enough to retain the acidity in the grapes, while also allowing enough sunshine to develop good fruit flavours and to ripen the grapes. The Coonawarra also has the famous strip of red, ‘terra rossa’ soil, which is ideal for producing intensely flavoured and well structured wines. Australian Cabernet Sauvignon usually shows aromas and flavours such as blackcurrant, black cherry, dark chocolate, mint, black olive, eucalyptus or cassis, in any combination. The wine usually has firm tannins and a good acidity, ideal for helping Cabernet Sauvignon to age well. Overall, Australian Cabernet Sauvignon has a total abundance of flavour and it goes extremely well with prime cuts of beef – on a chilly night.
About Margaret River
The Margaret River produces outstanding Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc as well as Bordeaux style red blends made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Located 200 kilometres south of Perth, the Margaret River has a warm maritime climate. This results in grapes that have concentrated fruit aromas and flavours while still retaining high levels of acidity, due to the cooling ocean breezes. This also allows the Margaret River to offer fresh, elegant and restrained wines as well as full-bodied and powerful wines.
