Tasting Notes

A 56/15/14/8/7% blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. A true 'vineyard' wine: if the fruit is in good condition it is picked and included in the wine without any blending trials, notwithstanding that each variety is separately fermented and matured in barrel. It has excellent colour for the vintage, and has a deliciously juicy, supple, ultra-smooth light to medium-bodied palate - one of the best '11 reds of any description from the Yarra Valley.
