“A marvellous balancing act... A superb wine with a big future”
97pts, Huon Hooke

Extremely Limited

This is an amazing wine, a flagship of the famous Yarra Valley Cabernet wine style. It's a wine destined for greatness. Winemaker Sarah Crowe produced an outstanding wine. It should be an essential part of any serious Australian cellar.

"Medium-deep red-purple colour, the bouquet toasty, smoky, cedary and dry-spiced, oak tinged. There is intense blackberry flavour backed by trim but firm tannins that provide elegance as well as structure. Refined texture and seamless line, the finish powering long and satisfying. There is richness and density too. A marvellous balancing act: it has a lightness of being at the same time as power and intensity. A superb wine with a big future."
97pts - Huon Hooke

"60/20/15/5% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/malbec/petit verdot. The cabernet fruit was destemmed and crushed, the other varieties kept as whole berries. Matured 15 months in French barrel (40% new). There is a coolness and restraint to the cassis fruit that builds, culminating in a long, chalky tannin finish. A complete and beautiful wine."
