About

About The Wine

With a long, illustrious history in the home of Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux, the Portets know a thing or two about the grape.

In the Yarra Valley they have found a place to produce a refined style of Cabernet, this is their "drinking not thinking" model.

Picked for freshness and to be "silky, juicy and open", this is the more approachable side of this noble variety.

Gary Walsh wrote "Have to say I like drinking this." in his 90 point review.

For $22 this would have to be one of the best Cabernet buys in the whole country!

The Wine Front

"Juicy and fresh-faced Cabernet with redcurrant, cherry and hazelnut chocolate. Medium bodied, soft and silky, with gently sweet fruit, a little nutty oak, attractive open-weave tannin, and a cherry marzipan aftertaste. Have to say I like drinking this." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

This is about enjoyment. It’s no secret that we love Cabernet Sauvignon and its ability to produce venerable wines – but this is more about drinking than thinking. It shows how this noble grape variety can be soft and silky, juicy and open – you’ve just got to treat it right.

This is bright, fresh and eminently swallowable, with ripe fruit flavours of blackcurrants and plums, a touch of fresh liquorice, a lick of spice and mellow tannins.

Blend : Cabernet Sauvignon (100%)
