Tasting Notes:

This is a very stylish and classic expression of Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Intensely varietal, with fresh, bright red berry fruit, cassis, subtle leafy and cedar hints, the wine has a complex yet well- balanced, flavoursome and elegant palate, soft tannins and lingering acidity and flavour.


Fruit was hand-picked, then meticulously sorted to select only the best berries for fermentation in two, French oak, open fermenters.

Fruit was cooled and held for four days before fermentation was allowed to commence, vessels were gently plunged twice daily during fermentation. The wine was on skins for a total of 28 days ‘on skinsâ€?before pressing to French oak barriques for malolactic fermentation and maturation for approximately twelve months before blending and bottling.

The Vintage: 

2021 was a â€?/span>dreamâ€?/span> Yarra Valley vintage, with almost ideal weather conditions throughout the entire season, leading to very healthy canopies and generous crops of beautiful fruit.

The season was generally mild and sunny, with very well-timed rain events for low disease pressure, good soil moisture and minimal requirement for supplementary irrigation. The season was long, allowing slow, steady and full ripening. Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested up to two weeks later than is typical.

The 2021 Old Block wines are stunning, with a unique freshness and intensity of perfectly ripe aromas, flavours, palate weight, focus and tannin structure â€?the best yet!
