About Watson Family Vineyards
After establishing Woodlands, the Watsons introduced the Watson Family Vineyards range which aims to produce elegant expressions of the Margaret River region, with wine styles that include the classics Shiraz, Cabernet Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, to emerging varieties such as Nebbiolo. Each wine is carefully produced and blended to be in a beautiful refreshing style that is a pleasure to drink now.
This wine is very deep crimson colour. The nose shows an array of mulberry, blackcurrant and cassis, with hints of Ceylon cinnamon and French oak. The palate is soft and generous, with more red fruits mixing with spice and dark chocolate. Supple tannins linger.
