Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia
Inaugural release of a superior Margaret River Cabernet, destined to be only ever made from the most outstanding vintage years. Crafted from the pick of an elite parcel in the northern precinct of Wilyabrup, where the warmer maritime climes encourage vines to yield a precious harvest of elegantly statuesque Cabernet Sauvignon. The icon of the Devils Lair marque and a preeminent regional flagship, replete with impenetrably rich, blackberry lozenge fruit characters, framed by a veneer of ebony oak, lined with the most astonishingly silky tannins.
There really is a Devil's Lair, an ancient archeological treasure trove which has revealed significant fossils of ancient Australian fauna. Not too distant from the site, the vineyards of Devils Lair are stimulated by a strongly maritime influenced climate, not dissimilar to Bordeaux, hence the stellar quality of Cabernet Sauvignon. The viticultural team source a significant proportion of outstanding quality fruit from Wilyabrup in the north, where the warmer influence of the Indian Ocean consistently produces elegant and beautifully ripe Cabernet Sauvignon with the finest, genteel tannins. Alcohol 14.5%
Dark, deep magenta red. Blueberries and bramble nose, violets and dusty herb, Crème de Cerise and cassis. A velvety palate of dark baked cherry flavours, intensely perfumed purple fruits, loganberries and jet black currant, supported by a sound structure of refined tannins and satisfying walnut oak. 9th Chamber is all about the harmony of tannins and layers of flavour, a balance that makes great Cabernet Sauvignon.
