Awards & Reviews:

90 Points: Halliday Wine Companion - A blend of 93/3.5/3.5% cabernet/merlot/malbec, left on skins for 25 days and matured in French barriques, 30% new. A medium cherry-crimson colour. Aromas of subtle red fruits and a little blackberry bush. Medium bodied and elegant with fine tannins, this well-framed wine is approachable now but will continue to improve over the medium term.

Tasting Notes:

This is a very stylish and classic expression of Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Quite tightly wound when young, the wine will benefit tremendously from decanting prior to serving, but more significantly, from a minimum of five years of bottle age. Red berries, cassis, subtle leafy and cedar hints, a complex yet well- balanced and elegant palate, a fine structural tannin backbone, with lingering acidity and flavour.  


The fruit was hand-picked, then meticulously sorted to select only the best berries for fermentation in three, small, open fermenters. The fermenters were gently plunged twice daily during fermentation, and left ‘on skinsâ€?for a total of 25 days during maceration. The wine was matured in premium oak barriques, for 12 months, before bottling in June 2020.
