What the Critics say
Part of the fruit comes from the Roche clone planted in ‘98, part from an earlier planting ('82), 55% matured in new French oak. A further year passed before it was released, and another 20-30 years will pass before the wine reaches its zenith. It is exceptionally long and intense, its balance flawless. Drink by: 20246
Domaine Naturaliste's finest cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon from the heart of Margaret River. A single vineyard selection of the prized “Houghton clone” planted in 1978 and then another section in 1982. These fully mature and majestic vines are some of the oldest in the region, planted by the second wave of winegrowing pioneers. The gravelly soils of the vineyard are flanked by the dominant native hard wood trees named Jarrah. Jarrah trees are a favourable and exact biological indicator that the site is ideally matched to Cabernet Sauvignon.
2013 Domaine Naturaliste 'Rebus' Cabernet 1.5L
'Bright colour; a winemaker's cabernet, with a fragrant cassis-accented bouquet book-ending with persistent tannins typical of cabernet, gliding elegantly along the medium-bodied palate between the book ends.'
