Region: Margaret River
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon from the heart of Margaret River. The gravelly soils of the vineyard are flanked by the dominant native hard wood trees named Jarrah. Jarrah trees have become a favourable and exact biological indicator that the site is ideally matched to Cabernet Sauvignon.
Fruit expression from this site includes violets, cassis and mulberry. Indeed, mulberry is a very attractive fruit character which is a unique part of the terroir expression of Margaret River Cabernet and our local heritage clone. This cuvee is named to reflect this unique mulberry character; Morus australis being the genus and species name for the mulberry tree.

96 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, Erin Larkin "It has cassis bramble, pomegranate molasses, cocoa nib and mulberry. The acid has a juiciness that offsets the supple, ductile tannin."
95 pts James Suckling "Aromas of black and red currants, fresh coffee, bark and pine needle. Medium-bodied with bright acidity. Fresh and red fruits with some savory undertones. Leafy herbs and pipe tobacco. Complex. Drink now."
Gold - 95pts Decanter World Wine Awards "...aromas of dark brambly fruit, cassis, sweet oak spices and hints of cedar. Big plush tannins on the palate, persistent."
