2020 Blind Corner Rouge
2020 Blind Corner Rouge; high-toned fragrance and seamless texture, cherry ripe aromatics with fleshy red fruit, subtle tannins and a touch of pepper.
This blend has been simply foot-crushed, hand-plunged during wild ferment and basket pressed to old oak for some sleepy time. Usually the Cabernet, Shiraz & Merlot are all from from their Quindalup vineyard but a low-yielding Shiraz block in 2020 lead them to a search for more top-notch organic Shiraz - luckily discovered just down the road.
Ben Gould has been doing some great things in his patch of Margaret River for a while now. Not busting through boundaries, just gently edging them forward in a good way.
