The “Old Cab” Houghton clone cuttings were collected from the Agricultural Department ‘Source Block’ in the Swan Valley and planted in 1976. Due to its ultimate suitability to the region and increased demand, the “Young Cab” was planted in 1998 from the original vines on the Estate. The “Old Cab” was originally all VSP grown but converted to cane pruned, with +90% Lyre trellis in 1998 with immediate and brilliant results. Coupled with the application of composted mulch, for the past 8 years, the Vineyard shows remarkable health and balance producing super premium fruit year in year out.Grapes are hand-picked over several mornings to capture the best characteristics of each site. Four-tonne parcels of pure berries are cold soaked, inoculated and gently plunged every three hours in temperature-controlled, open, stainless steel fermenters. After desired extraction the wine is racked off skins and completes MLF in tank prior to ageing in 100% premium French oak barriques (20% new) for a minimum of 18 months. After blending, filtration and bottling the wine further matures in our underground, climate-controlled cellar for 18 months before release. The resulting wine bursts with raspberry jelly crystal and sweet violet aromas. Ripe red berries, cherry plum fruit leather and hints of cassis saturate the palate with fine-grained tannins creating a succulent, velvety mouth-feel. Subtle, leafy nuances typical of old vine Wilyabrup Cabernet and elegant French oak spice add layers of complexity creating a wine that evolves beautifully in the glass. Ashbrook Estate has made this traditional Bordeaux-style blend since 1984.Hairydog Team Notes: Lifted aromas of cassis and herbal spice with some savoury herbaceous notes. Big flavours of cassis and spice follow from the nose onto the palate which are given structure by a fine tannin providing a soft velvety mouth-feel. French oak spice provides some backbone and complexity while adding to the length of this classice Margaret Rvier Cabernet.
