The name Whalbone Vineyard was created due to the discovery of a 30 million year old Whale skeleton in a limestone cave beneath tapanappa's Wrattonbully Vineyard. Here both the Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grape varieties thrive, and blending superbly well particularly in the excellent 2008 vintage.

Tasting Date : 23 December 2014

Deep purple still, the Cabernet is very evident on the nose, ripe black fruits with a hint of clove, quite brad now and obviously evolved on the nose. The palate is nicely fruited, with ample texture touch of morello. This is decandent stuff, the blend of 30% Shiraz adds a subtle spice on the finish, very moorish, a good wine with or without food.

Rating : 90/100
