2013 Flor Marché Elise Cabernet Sauvignon. Wilyabrup, Margaret River

Full, mouth coating, generous palate of sweet blackcurrants, plum skins, a lick of black olives and a sprinkling of ground coffee. Bay leaf and tart mouth-watering cranberry on the mid palate. Has both elements of chocolate, milky on the palate and moreish dark / bitter chocolate on the long satisfying finish, along with a hint of sour cherry. Complex notes of smokey, sweet caramelised onions that add interest. Very fine tannins.

Flor Marché Elise Cabernet Sauvignon

This excellent example of Margaret River cabernet has a lot of flavour packed into the bottle. Yes please!

This exciting new and upcoming winery are really kicking some goals and I reckon most of their wines are worth seeking out and trying. I covered their Pinot Noir last year and loved it. Since then, I have also tried their excellent Riesling, Chardonnay and Shiraz.

Tasted 2nd April 2015.

Source : Sample from Flor Marché wines. RRP $39.95 at Old Bridge Cellars. Flor Marché wines are also stocked at La Vigna, Steves, The Re Store in Leederville and Young George.
