Deep Woods Estate 2019 Rose
Deep Woods Rose 2019 is head and shoulders above most Aussie Rose wine. A Tempranillo, Shiraz, Vermentino blend it has great texture and mouthfeel. It’s crisp and pale coloured but fruit flavours are not sacrificed. Well worth the few dollars more !
RRP $35 (Club members) Rating 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Deep Woods Estate 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Winemaker Julian Langworthy’s craft and judgement are again on view in the Deep Woods Estate Cabernet Merlot 2017.
He describes it as one of their best wines “to cellar for special occasions or drink on a Tuesday with pizza.”
There’s deep lashings of black currant, bright acid freshness and none of the hard work associated with drinking some stoic Cabernets. Refined, accessible but not dumbed down. The 2 gold medals are well deserved.
RRP $31.50 (Club Members) Rating 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Deep Woods Estate 2017 Single Vineyard Cabernet Malbec
Malbec brings a lot to the party when blended with Cabernet. Arguably more so than Merlot with which Cabernet is more often paired.
You see Cabernet is an artistocrat and can be a bit straight laced. Malbec gives generosity and a voluptuousness to this single vineyard Deep Woods blend from the Yallingup subregion. The value each brings is clear cut.
Winemaker Julian Langworthy’s touch is assured as ever in this beautiful wine that has cleaned up at wine shows. Trophies from the Royal Sydney, Hobart and Perth shows. Great value for the quality.
RRP $45. Churlish to give anything other than a rating of 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
