Allegiance Wines The Artisan Margaret River Trident Red Blend 2016
Varieties
Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Cabernet Franc 30%, Petit Verdot 20%
Region
Margaret River, WA - Halliday Vintage Rating 9/10
Wine making Notes
The 2016 vintage was warm and dry throughout the crucial lead-up to harvest enabling the fruit to attain flavour and tannin ripeness at maturity. A portion of the Cabernet was left for an extended period of maceration on skins. The wine was matured for approximately 14 months in 25% new French Oak barriques. Cellar potential of 8+ years.
Colour
Deep brick red with purple ruby hues
Nose
Enticing and fresh, the lifted aromas of spice, plums and dark berries are immediately attractive.
Palate
This wine is instantly recognizable as Margaret River. The palate is rich and generous with a luscious mouth filling texture and silky smooth tannins. Balanced throughout the journey, it finishes attractive and long.
Comments
The Artisan, a skilled craftsman producing high quality wines in small quantities using traditional methods. Allegiance Wines The Artisan is a small batch release of outstanding wine expressing the finest regional and varietal characters.

Reviews
95 points (5 Stars) – Huon Hooke, The Real Review 
Deep, youthful red/purple colour. The bouquet is fresh and bright,
with spicy, floral and star anise aromas, while the palate is full-bodied,
deep and well concentrated, with abundant firm tannins backing up.
Classic cassis and violet cabernet flavours, deep-set. Long carry; firm,
dry tannin finish. This promises a long & productive lifespan. Drink to 2039.
95 points (5 Stars) – Leo Daly, Wine Matrix  A beautiful trilogy of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot with an already settled character from the 2016 vintage. This wine has something for everyone. Brick red in the glass, the nose follows on with attractive spice & dark plum. Palate wise, a full bodied style offering cassis & black current flavours & in typical Margaret River style, it finishes with soft & lingering tannins. Has got the legs to get better with cellaring, but don’t deny yourself the opportunity to experience it now.
94 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  A wonderfully expressed Bordeaux-style red; the fragrant bouquet shows blackcurrant, dark plum, thyme, cedar and olive characters, leading to a flavoursome palate that is supple and lingering. It is beautifully fruited and brilliantly structured by fine, grainy tannins, finishing long and pleasingly dry. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot. At its best: now to 2026.
94 points – Rob Geddes MW  Complexity on the nose, ripe sweet but not jammy, very Margaret River cassis and black currant aromas. The plate has ripe fruit and well-balanced tannins.
Recommended – Gourmet Traveller Wine, Feb 2020 / Mar 2020 – Best Buy Wines – Wines To Cellar  The wine delivers a lot of honest cabernet-family flavour and has a structure to help it age. With a deep and youthful colour, it has a fresh bouquet of spicy, floral and star anise aromas, while the palate is full bodied, deep and well-concentrated, backed up by generous tannins. The deep-set cassis and violet aromas and flavours are typical of the region. The long finish is laced with firm, dry tannins. Best drinking 2021-2039. A$40 / NZ$45.
