About

The iconic Mount Mary Quintet is one of the jewels of the Yarra Valley.

A blend of the five Bordeaux varieties, planted side-by-side on one of the Yarra’s most revered sites. This personifies the medium-bodied, regal style of Cabernet blends from this region.

The 2014 vintage was lower yielding than previous years. The fruit intensity was superb, the balance faultless. James Halliday highly recomended this release with 97 points and also naming Mount Mary his 2018 Winery of the Year, and Gary Walsh fully concurred with 96+ points of his own.

A thing of beauty. A thing of class. A wine for the cellar to be marvelled at for decades to come.

What It Tastes Like

“Perfumed and pretty with almost succulent small black and red berries, a little vanilla and violet, cedar, tobacco and pencil cases. Medium bodied, delicious boysenberry/blackcurrant flavour, cool minerally acidity, mouth-filling but ultra fine gravelly tannin, that superb Cabernet perfume again, and extreme length closing with an array of red and black berries and refreshingly pure rain-washed acidity. What a wine. As a frame of reference, perhaps Ginger Rogers – can do anything Fred can do, but backwards while wearing heels – and a fraction better it is than either 2012 or 2013, I’d suggest.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
