A NOTE FROM OUR WINEMAKERS

This wine has heaps of flavour and depth; quite a big style for the Yarra Valley. It will grow in the bottle for the next two to three years and then age superbly.

THE FINER DETAILS

TASTING NOTES

This is a full-bodied, rich wine with powerful aromas of red berries, earthy complexity and hints of spice and blackcurrant. The palate has plenty of ripe berry fruits and spice as well as earthy depth and beautifully balanced tannins. It will age superbly. Drink with rare Victorian Wagyu beef.

VINTAGE

There was good winter rainfall in 2012 creating excellent soil moisture. Early heat in spring and a warm dry summer led to an early harvest, but cool conditions in autumn allowed optimal ripeness in Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.

WINEMAKING

This fruit was handpicked in mid-March; the wine was matured for 15 months in French oak barriques, approximately one third new.
