Woodlands Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Matthew’ 2014

Vintage: 2014

Tasting Note: Woodlands ‘Matthew’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 red wine from WA’s local award winning Margaret River Region. The Matthew is a 95 point scored Cabernet Sauvignon by James Halliday. It’s not surprise that Woodlands is also a 5 star winery as awarded by James Halliday Wine companion and vegan-friendly.

The ‘Matthew’ exudes a depth and substance to satisfy any cabernet sauvignon lover.

2014 was a warm consistent year producing wines of balance. Unfortunately high winds early in Spring reduced some varieties, but our Cabernet Sauvignon survived unscathed. Warm dry conditions until February perfectly ripened the Cabernet Franc and Malbec, but from March onwards the conditions cooled somewhat, extending out the Cabernet Sauvignon harvest and enabling more flavour development.

The Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from our original plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc found on our south-facing slope. The soil profile of this slope is generally sandy loam over gravel and clay. The top of the slope, where the Cabernet Franc is planted, has significantly more gravel in its soil. These four small plots receive the greatest number of sunlight hours on the vineyard, but the east-west orientation of the vines ensures a slow fruit maturation. These are the last batches harvested each year.
