The Wine Front – Beautiful perfume of dried flowers, sweet tobacco and spice, blackcurrant and redcurrant, even almond meal. Dense and dark, with a smattering of dried herb, ripe cherry, crisp acidity, firm grainy tannin, and a distinctly ‘mineral’ and savoury finish of exemplary length. It’s a textbook example of superb Yarra Valley Cabernet. 96 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front December 2020
About This Wine
Cabernet Sauvignon 58%, Cabernet Franc 13%, Merlot 11%, Petit Verdot 10%, Malbec 8%. As always, our Bordeaux blend is a perfect example of the saying that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The 2018 vintage is a great example, seamlessly combining depth and power with purity, elegance and finesse. An imposing nose of cassis, violets, plum and roasted peppers, with aromas of graphite, cigar box, cedar and bay – everything in place, well-controlled, perfectly proportioned. The palate, powerful this vintage, opens in typically generous and fleshy style, with ripe black fruits, plummy Merlot plushness, and wonderful floral lift, while the ample, well-knit tannins provide savoury shape and structure. The palate finishes with effortless length and complexity. This is a wine to enjoy now, but as always, a wine that will reward cellaring over 15 to 20 years. – Sandra de Pury
