  • 95 James Halliday - From Frankland River, hand-picked, berry-sorted, wild yeast open-fermented, 3 weeks on skins, matured for 12 months in new and used French oak. Deep, bright crimson-purple; kid gloves cabernet, every aspect from the first whiff of the bouquet through to the aftertaste of the palate is exactly proportioned and polished. Too well groomed? Natural wine lovers would hate it venomously because it's a really lovely cabernet.
