About

In the words of Gary Walsh, "I think vintage 2015 will be seen as especially strong for Yarra Valley Cabernet." This wine is most certainly proof positive. A tiny yield of only 1 tonne of Cabernet from the original 1970 plantings on the Hillcrest vineyard forms the backbone of this wine. This is a supremely concentrated Cabernet pulled into a medium-bodied framework, guided to bottle with minimal intervention by vignerons David and Tanya Bryant. Devastatingly seductive, composed and aristocratic, this is regal Yarra Cabernet at its finest.

What it Tastes Like

"Opens with a whiff of tomato paste and herb rolled black olives, but clears to black fruits, black tea perfume, cedar and rich dark shag tobacco. Medium bodied, superb etch of acidity and graphite tannin lends a convincing ‘minerally’ feel, savoury and tense, that black tea flavour runs through the wine, and the finish is essence of blackberry and blackcurrant, with forest berry acidity drawing out the strings. That palate though, wow." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
