Arlewood Estate was established in 1988 in the Willyabrup Valley of the Margaret River wine region in Western Australia. The combination of an excellent vineyard site coupled with some of the best people in the business harness the drive and passion the Arlewood partnership has. This formula promises to deliver Arlewood into the top echelon of Margaret River producers, through releases of fine, elegant wines that offer both power and finesse. The wine was packaged in the bold new Arlewood livery. The labels have been designed with a nod to the past, but well and truly looking ahead to where we see Arlewood heading.
A blend of Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet from the original Wilyabrup vineyard. Perfumed and highly scented aromas lead into a palate that has a tight angular structure threading through some fine supple fruit. Has had plenty of oak which is tying things up at the moment but with ageing it will show some real character. Dry dusty finish.
