Woodlands Brook Vineyard Cabernet Clementine

Clémentine is sourced entirely from Woodlands Brook Vineyard, established to Merlot and Malbec, Verdot and Franc, a superior northwest facing site on free draining Wilyabrup soils.

Salinity, cocoa and clove, blood orange and river silt, the elegant palate brimming with ripe red fruits, a lovely mix of floral elements and winegum lozenge complexity, Clémentine lingers endlessly on a line of lively mineral acidity.

Woodlands Brook Vineyard was originally planted on a gentle north facing slope of sandy loams to Merlot and Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The enticing Emily was conjured up before Cabernet Sauvignon became cardinal to Woodlands. Fruit is destemmed by a swinging motion through a vibrating hopper, grapes are passed over a vibrating sorting table. Upon completion of ferments, batches are filled to a high proportion of new French oak barrels for fourteen months maturation. Emily is made in very limited quantities, only 300 cases can be made each year.
 
Deep crimson. The nose is powerful and expressive, a summer garden’s mix of raspberry, blackcurrant and strawberry, violet and lavender. The right bank style of Bordeaux, blueberries and dark currant, pretty blue floral notes, the savouryness of vegetable leaf over a length of vibrant, healthy tannins, a beautiful drink of class and restrained power, balanced by great natural acidity.

Woodlands Margaret is sourced entirely from Woodlands Vineyard, the Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a south slope which wraps around a ninety degree radius from east to north. Vines receive a great deal of direct sunlight from morning to mid afternoon. Merlot and Malbec are grown to a west facing slope of deep loam soils which receives the most direct afternoon sunlight and yields intensely flavoured berries. Grapes are hand picked, sorted and destemmed, crushed into small closed fermenters, pumped over four times daily. Upon completion, the Cabernet is soaked for a month on skins. Following malolactic, Woodlands is filled to a high proportion of new French oak barrels for eighteen months maturation.

Woodlands Matthew Cabernet Sauvignon
Margaret River

Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Franc. Woodlands have observed that some parcels of their vineyard produce aromatic ferments, while others are more structured. The finest pickings are treated to small open fermenters enhancing aromatics. Parcels showing greater structure are vinified in small closed fermenters. The best of both worlds, a Cabernet that retains vibrant aromatic fruit whilst gaining structure and adding weight. After a year in exclusively new French oak, the best barrels of vintage are determined and set aside for the final assemblage.

Fruit is sourced from the original estate plantings of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, on a south facing, sandy loam over gravel clay slope. These small plots receive the greatest number of sunlight hours at Woodlands, the east west orientation of vines ensures a slow ripening, the last parcels to be harvested each year. Fruit is picked late March to early April, destemmed and passed over a vibrating sorting table, crushed and vinified in small closed fermenters, followed by a term of maceration on skins before being pressed for malolactic. Upon completion, batches are transferred to new French medium toast barrels for nineteen months maturation.
 
Deep crimson colour. The nose reveals cassis and mulberry, blackcurrant, violet and toasty French oak. The palate shows deep brooding characters of blackberry, mulberry and briar. A very focused wine, with an array of rich fruit flavours and long grained tannins.

Woodlands is a ten hectare vineyard located in the Wilyabrup region of Margaret River established in 1973 by David and Heather Watson and remains family owned and operated

Woodlands vineyard was one of the first five vineyards to be planted in the Margaret River Wine Region. David and Heather aimed to create wines to emulate the great vineyards of Bordeaux, namely Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet based blends. Woodlands came to fame early on with the release of the 1981 Andrew Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine took out trophies for Best Red Wine at the Perth Wine Show, the Mt Barker Wine Show and the National Wine Show. This wine was the first from Margaret River to achieve a National Red Wine Trophy. Subsequent Cabernets made by David Watson won trophies and critical acclaim across the country.

Woodlands

In 1992 Woodlands production virtually ceased while David and Heather brought their children up in private schools in Perth, and fruit was sold to other high profile producers in the region. In 1999, with the children out of school, Woodlands began to produce wines again, making the most of its fully mature vines. Woodlands now has an annual production of 4000 cases, specializing in red wine. David’s son Stuart has been the winemaker at Woodlands since 2002.

In 2005 Woodlands won Trophies at the Margaret River Wine Show and the Winewise Small Vignerons Awards. Woodlands also won gold medals at the National Wine Show, the Margaret River Wine Show (2 golds), the Perth Royal Wine Show, the Rutherglen Wine Show (2 golds), the Winewise Small Vignerons Awards, and the Boutique Winemaker’s Awards.

Winemaking is minimalist at Woodlands, the emphasis being on small open ferments and excellent barrel selection. Woodlands still aims to emulate the great wines of Bordeaux, and today stands closer to its goal then ever before. The Wilyabrup sub-region is in the heart the Margaret River wine-growing region, and contains most of Margaret River’s oldest and most respected wineries.

In 1973 cuttings were taken from the Moss Wood vineyard located across the road, and an initial planting of eight acres was made in rows heading east-west along the contour of the property - 3 meters between rows and 1.75 meters between vines. The initial planting comprised 3 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon. A further 5 acres was planted between 1974 and 1976, comprising Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. The old block was completed in 1985, with 4 acres of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon planted. Subsequent plantings now sees Woodlands with a total of twenty six acres (ten hectares) of vines.

The soil at Woodlands is composed of 30cm of top soil, a bed of 30 cm of gravel extending to 60 cm of gravel and then a bed of white clay, ensuring excellent sub soil drainage for root development. Woodlands is located within its own valley, with slopes rising in each direction and the Woodlands Brook running through the centre. Woodlands vineyard is dry grown and maintained by hand. Attention in the vineyard includes cane pruning, bunch thinning, hand plucking the leaves around the fruit zone, crop thinning and hand picking.

"The quality of the grapes, with a priceless core of 6.8 ha of 30+ year old cabernet sauvignon, more recently joined by merlot, malbec, cabernet franc, pinot noir and chardonnay, has never been in doubt. Whatever the shortcomings of the 1990s, these days Woodlands is producing some spectacular wines in small quantities. The larger volume Cabernet Sauvignon is also of very high quality. Some behind the scenes consultancy advice has played its part, and Woodlands is now a major player in the top echelon of Margaret River producers. " -James Halliday
