Willow Bridge Estate Dragonfly Cabernet Merlot

Geographe is Margaret River’s more affordable neighbour, Willow Bridge is its top estate and Dragonfly is where the best value is found. Matured in a combination of new and old French oak barrels, this is a cabernet merlot of delightful varietal precision, alive with red- and blackcurrants, tobacco and capsicum. It’s lively and crunchy, powered by vibrant acidity and slightly more serious tannins than you’d expect, providing an air of sophistication that transcends its price. It will live a few years, too. $14 at Grays Online and Dan Murphy’s.
