About The Wine

Here's a very tasty Cabernet from the Pyrenees in Victoria.

This is a powerful, impeccably balanced Cabernet, rich in fruit, ripe in tannin, ready to drink now or cellar for a decade. Unusually, this was fermented as whole bunches, it's not every day that you see that applied to Cabernet but here it works a treat.

The reviews for this wine have been excellent. With 95 points from James Halliday and 93 points from Campbell Mattinson, you can bank on this wine delivering everything you're looking for in a classic $30 'Claret'.

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"As with the Shiraz from the same vintage and vineyard, has restraint and detail. Excellent dark crimson; smells of the Aussie bush with gum leaves, wood smoke, warm earth, ferrous nuances and buckshot with a decent dose of blackberries and boysenberries. A structured yet buoyant palate, ribbons of tannin and a certain elegance seals the deal." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

93Points
The Wine Front

"Pure, clean, well flavoured and powered – and just a little bit sexy. Sexy cabernet, no less. It’s the smooth texture, the ripe fruit, the momentum of blackcurrant, mint and dark plum. Tannin curls through the finish without interrupting the overall flow; nutty oak plays a polishing role only. It’s a good wine, in a good place, with a future." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
