Roustabout Margaret River Cabernet SauvignonRegular price $25.00
|Aroma & Palate||White pepper, tobacco, grassy|
|Style||A Cab Sav for Summer|
With black and white pepper, tobacco and freshly-mown lawn, Roustabout bring us an approachably summery take on what can be a heavy or haughty grape and style.
Gorgeous powdery tannins and a tasty bit of subtle mulberry sweetness round out the cornucopia of herb, vegetable and smoke flavours.
About the Winery
Roustabout’s name and label pay tribute to the larrikin character of bush poet Henry Lawson’s stoic drover Andy, and their approach, with unpretentious bare-bones packaging, minimal marketing and an unfussy website, speaks both to this and to a real confidence in the product on the part of winemaker and WA climate guru Peter Pratten.
Using fruit drawn from Margaret River and the lesser-known Pemberton, Geographe and Mount Barker regions, this is winemaking out west at its best.
