Woodlands Matthew Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

  • Grape Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Country Australia
  • Region Margaret River
  • Producer Woodlands
  • Case size 12 / 75cl
  • 2014 was a warm consistent year producing wines of balance. Unfortunately high winds early in Spring reduced some varieties, but our Cabernet Sauvignon survived unscathed. Warm dry conditions until February perfectly ripened the Cabernet Franc and Malbec, but from March onwards the conditions cooled somewhat, extending out the Cabernet Sauvignon harvest and enabling more flavour development.
  • The Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from our original plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc found on our south-facing slope. The soil profile of this slope is generally sandy loam over gravel and clay. The top of the slope, where the Cabernet Franc is planted, has significantly more gravel in its soil. These four small plots receive the greatest number of sunlight hours on the vineyard, but the east-west orientation of the vines ensures a slow fruit maturation. These are the last batches harvested each year.

Woodlands now has an annual production of 12000 cases, specialising in red wine, and remains owned and operated by the Watson family. In 2010 David and Heather were awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Margaret River Wine Industry Association. In 2016 David & Heather were the joint recipients of the prestigious Jack Mann Memorial Medal. The medal is awarded annually to those who have made a significant contribution to the WA Wine Industry. Woodland premier wine, the Cabernet Sauvignon, is still made from the same planting originally made by David and Heather in 1973. Woodlands Cabernet Sauvignon continues to garner awards and critical acclaim, including being listed in the Langton Classification of Fine Wines.

When David and Heather Watson first established Woodlands in 1973, they were amongst the first six pioneers to plant vineyards in Margaret River and can certainly claim to have helped establish the region’s reputation for Cabernet Sauvignon. With the addition of a second vineyard site, purchased in 1998, the Watson family now have 25 hectares of vineyard in the Wilyabrup valley, which is maintained by hand using traditional and organic methods and without irrigation – a rarity in this arid corner of Australia. A true family affair, son Stuart is the winemaker and Andrew is in charge of operations. Five red stars from Halliday and an ‘Outstanding’ rating for the Cabernet Sauvignon from Langton’s identify Woodlands as one of the very best producers in the region.
