"Stern with tannin but flush with black cherried fruit. Liberal doses of black pepper and meaty spice notes add layers of interest and complexity. This is a wine of beauty and presence, that will live and mature terrifically over the next decade and (well) beyond. The price makes it a steal." 95 points, James Halliday Wine Companion, October 2016.

Colour

Beautiful vibrant purple in colour.

Nose

Dark and plummy with a hint of vanilla, raspberry and white pepper and clove.

Palate

Aromas follow nicely onto the palate - which enters all dark and savoury leather but quickly builds into rich fruitcake and liquorice, with a touch of oregano. Ripe tannins give a lovely tension with raspberry and spice lingering. Well weighted and supple.

Background

If 'In Vino Veritas' (in wine there's truth), then surely this truth begins in the vineyard. The Right Reverend V by Vinaceous Wines are sourced from our most revered vineyards; vineyards that begin in Margaret River's north, stretch south to Cape Leeuwin, and then continue south- west to the Great Southern region and to Mount Barker; these are the premium wine regions of Western Australia. The Right Reverend V selects its chosen varietals from vineyards that cover over 670 hectares available across these two regions; cool climate Riesling from Mount Barker. Crisp Chardonnay from southern Margaret River. Dry, savoury Pinot Noir Rose from north Margaret River. And beautifully, brooding cabernets from Mount Barker. Each wine is named after one of the seven virtues, designed to combat the seven deadly sins of mankind - temperance, integrity, patience and charity - all of which are also virtues in winemaking. Modern winemaking and unique stylistic interpretations with the enjoyment of fine food underlines our vision.
