Howard Park Leston Cabernet Sauvignon in a gift box

Give someone special a beautifully presented bottle of Leston Cabernet Sauvignon on a bespoke gift box the Cabernet Sauvignon from the Leston vineyard, located in the heart of Margaret River, is crafted to highlight the distinctive varietal and regional qualities of our best sites. In the temperate climate of Margaret River, Cabernet Sauvignon is at home. Here the maritime influences temper the extremes of seasons and allow Cabernet Sauvignon to thrive.

Small parcels are hand-picked and all batches are sorted to remove matter other than grapes before fermentation. Fermentation occurred in closed stainless steel fermenters. Selected parcels remained on skins after fermentation to further enhance the tannin profile while others were pressed at dryness to capture fruit vibrancy. Each batch is matured separately in order to build a wine history over time. Matured to French oak ~ 40 % new for 18 months before a light fining and filtration prior to bottling.

TASTING NOTES

Garnet colour. A lifted and brambly bouquet; cassis, eucalyptus, graphite. Mouthfilling red and black fruit notes with a jube-like quench of blackcurrant, pomegranate, cherry plum, with hints of graphite, samphire plus cedar oak nuances. There is an elegance here to all components. Maturation in French oak for 18 months (40% new) smooths the edges of the palate and adds a little weight; it tapers with fine dry tannin, balanced with natural acidity, so the delicate details of this cabernet shine through.
