Quick Overview


Cabernet is king, and long will it reign in our eyes. If this modern new blend doesn’t resonate hugely with you all then there’s something amiss in the realm. It’s expressive, medium-bodied and smells of hope wrapped in pure emotion. – Alana & Julian Langworthy

Product Description

Margaret River is, in many senses, a blessed place. The wild yet implausibly perfect beauty of its Indian Ocean coastline hints at effortless epicness. The nonchalance with which it seems to knock out immaculate, flavourful and aromatically beguiling fruit year in, year out similarly hints at a preternatural gift.
Charismatic, ebullient and virtuosic husband-and-wife team Julian and Alana Langworthy embody the magic of Margs. They’ve been making wine together for well over a decade but it is Nocturne – which debuted with the 2015 vintage – that encapsulates their dreams. It is into these wines that they deposit the fruit from their own beloved Sheoak Cabernet vineyard, along with other prized sites they’ve unearthed plus all the care and flair they’ve mustered. The initial three releases of single-vineyard wines have won them a diehard following – so much so that their most recent incarnation’s listing in their portfolio spent some 10 months with the annotation ‘Sold out’ written in the ‘Comments’ column. 



None of us takes this sort of thing for granted, and we never will. As a means of encouraging greater access to the joys of Nocturne, Julian and Alana devised a plan – hatched with trademark consideration and verve – to extend the range to include a sub-regional exploration of their wines to sit beneath the enduringly peerless single-vineyard wines. 



This ‘SR’ range is here now, an invitation to dive into the boundless pleasures that swirl about where the wellspring
of Langworthy brilliance intersects with the easy-flowing charms of Margaret River.


Sometimes shit just goes right. The 2018 vintage is to high-end Margaret River Cabernet what peas are to carrots. It was that good - not too hot nor too cold, with moderately high growing-season rainfall and, most importantly, a long, dry, benign finish. We started picking on 29th March and from the moment the fruit hit the fermenter it was destined to be a classic. 



Instantly perfumed and richly coloured, the wine spent 12 days on skins with a peak fermentation temperature of around 28ºC. The wine was pressed to tank and settled briefly, before being transferred to a combination of new (25%), two- and three-year-old barrels to undergo malolactic conversion. The wine was racked only once in this time and, after 15 months in oak, was emptied from barrel. At this juncture we decided the final make-up of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon with 13 % Merlot. These wines were then settled together, clarified and bottled.



Cabernet is king, and long will it reign in our eyes. If this modern new blend doesn’t resonate hugely with you all then there’s something amiss in the realm. It’s expressive, medium-bodied and smells of hope wrapped in pure emotion. – Alana & Julian Langworthy
