The Hidden Cave Cabernet Shiraz is instantly recognisable as Margaret River in origin, despite it being a relatively unusual blend for Margaret River, with fine, elegant tannins, sweet cassis fruit and lingering spice.
'In this delicious, drink-now red, winemaker Oliver Crawford captures the floral aromatics sometimes seen in cabernet sauvignon. Those seductive floral notes flow through to a supple palate, dripping with juicy summer-berry flavours, cut with very fine tannins and seasoned with cedar-like, barely perceptible oak. While cabernet dominates the aroma and flavour, shiraz gives flesh to the mid palate. 4 STARS'
