Flowstone Queen of the Earth Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Flowstone is a tiny little grapegrower and winemaker just south of the Margaret River township, in the beautiful Forest Grove area and is the venture of Stuart Pym and Phil Giglia. Stuart's involvement with wine commenced in 1983, when he moved to Margaret River to help his parents establish their vineyard and winery in Wilyabrup.
Open-fermented, plunged three times daily, before 17 days on skins, 3 years in barrel plus another 15 months of settling prior to dispatch, the result is a lustrous cabernet. Crushed herb melds effortlessly with cassis, violet, gummy bear pastille, black olive and a swab of bay leaf tannins. There is so much glycerol, that it is already a nice drink. Perfumed and inviting. However, my suggestion is to test your patience, cellaring it for 8 years onwards. Drink to: 2030; Price: $74.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2018; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
