With all the wines we offer having passed an extremely tough Tasting Panel, it’s never a surprise to see them recognised by Australia’s premier critic. But it’s always nice nonetheless. Each of these featured drops has earned a minimum of 90 points from James Halliday.
A bold bouquet of cassis, cigars and cedar continue onto the palate. Full-bodied fruit characters and long, board tannins coat the mouth before ending with a persistent finish. A classic Caberent of flavour and balance.
Item Code: ITM5906
Deep red in colour with ripe mulberry and blackcurrant aromas. The palate displays flavours of dark fruits intertwined with dark chocolate oak. Soft mouth-coating tannins create excellent balance.
Item Code: ITM2712
Lifted fruit aromas leap from the glass, and progress onto a mouth-filling palate of juicy plum and spicy oak. The wine is backed by fine tannins that provides excellent balance and leads to a persistent finish.
Item Code: ITM5242
“Unimpeachable varietal expression from the first whiff of the bouquet to the finish of the medium-bodied palate. A fusion of cassis/blackcurrant, black olive, bay leaf and savoury tannins. As is usual, oak plays a minor role in shaping flavour.” Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM18565
Blackcurrant, eucalypt and a touch of capsicum and leafy tobacco on the nose. The ripe palate is supported by dusty tannins providing good texture and complexity.
Item Code: ITM21661
Ripe black fruit, plum and dried herb aromas lead to a palate that is rich and structured with fine, grippy tannins. Recommended.
Item Code: ITM21905
The nose offers intoxicating aromas of rose and blackberry with
slight herbaceous notes. The palate displays flavours of berries,
violet and spice, while persistent tannins and a velvety mouthfeel
provide structure and excellent length.

"This is one of the best wines that Deep Woods Estate makes and the one that I cellar for special occasions - and also drink it on a Tuesday with pizza." Julian Langworthy, Chief Winemaker
Item Code: ITM15337
A powerful and intense red with generous blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit flavours. Fine tannins and cool acidity complete a harmonious wine that is excellent now but will get better with careful cellaring to 2024.
Item Code: ITM5757
“A cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec, cabernet franc, petit verdot blend, indirectly nodding to Bordeaux, part of the Aquitaine region. This oozes class from every pore, every inch along the palate having something to contribute to this lovely wine. Blackcurrant/cassis, ripe, full tannins, classy oak (and integration) are all cause for joy.” Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM15407
Aromas of violets and glazed cherries are supported by hints of cedar, cassis and forest floor. The palate enters with fine-grained tannins and is followed by notes of bright raspberries and mulberries. A wonderful expression of Margaret River Cabernet from an exceptional vintage.
Item Code: ITM4836
Medium bodied and tightly wound with fine layers of oak overlaying dark and ripe Cabernet fruits. It is clearly varietal with finely polished, persistent tannins and savoury fruit sweetness on the finish. A classical Margaret River Cabernet that will reward cellaring.
Item Code: ITM7612
"A thoroughly attractive cabernet from start to finish, sustained throughout by perfectly ripened cassis fruit, the bouquet aromatic, the palate medium-bodied, the finish balanced. This is an emphatic drink now style, although its balance will secure its long term future." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM15287
"Silken mouthfeel. Good fruit power. Ultra-fine tannin and impressive length. It’s not a big or burly cabernet but it impresses from the outset, and for all the right reasons. It’s creamy, chocolatey, curranty and varietal, its more herbal side tucked neatly within. Pure cabernet." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM17702
“A powerfully built cabernet of outstanding potential. A great wine, and possibly the best yet from Cape Mentelle.” Huon Hooke
Item Code: ITM6027
