-4-The 2014 vintage in Margaret River was built on a sound foundation with excellent rainfall throughout 2013, averaging over 1000 millilitres across the region. This provided a solid platform of sub-soil moisture, before almost completely stopping from December through to March, when the amount of rain was average (less than 4% of the whole year). This produced conditions very similar to 1994-1996, 2001, 2004, 2010, years that are considered outstanding vintages. In autumn, mild days and cooler nights were ideal for the full physiological development of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, concentrating the avour spectrum and softening tannin levels naturally.
