YARRA VALLEY

Varietal: Cabernet blend
Current Vintage: 2017
Bottle Size: 750ml 
Case Size: 6

TASTING NOTES:

Complex aromas of blackcurrant, mulberry and rhubarb, lifted by spice and pencil shavings and underpinned by a herbal, savoury feel. The palate is structured and elegant showing concentration and restraint, and finely detailed too. 

"It’s a round wine, rather than lean and long, delivering rich Cabernet satisfaction with every sip. Love it." 94 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

VINIFICATION:

Each variety was hand-picked and vinified separately. All varieties were destemmed and partially crushed before being tipped into small open fermenters for a natural fermentation. The ferments were given lots of air via gravity drain and returns during the fermentation period. Total maceration time was 14 days. The wine was pressed off to French oak barriques for malolactic fermentation and maturation for 14 months (12% new oak - 88% used oak).

WINE REGION:

Located in Victoria, approximately 90 kilometres east of Melbourne. The area's relatively cool climate makes it particularly suited to the production of high-quality chardonnay, pinot noir and sparkling wine and more equated with a Burgundy style climate.

FOOD PAIRING:
