Eyes

Ruby red.

Nose

Fragrant blackberry fruits, varietal leafy notes plus toasty cedar oak aromas.

Mouth

Ripe blackcurrant fruit complimented by choc-mint, undergrowth and cedar oak flavours. Proudly medium bodied with classical Cabernet Sauvignon structure of abundant fine grain tannins which contribute to an elegant, persistent dry finish. This wine is unmistakably varietal Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemaking Notes

Vegan Friendly

The Victorian Pyrenees region is renowned for consistently producing Cabernet Sauvignon displaying complexity and definitive regional character, even in dryer years like the 2015 – 2016 growing season, which provided some early rains, a mild spring , warm summer, then a warm dry autumn to finish. Produced from select parcels of low yielding grapes sourced from our estate vineyard, the Blue Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 was fermented to dryness in two-tonne open fermenters and 15-tonne static fermenters. Subsequently, the wine was matured for 24 months in a combination of older French and American oak plus 10% tank matured with staves.

Sam Kim

The wine is delightfully fruited and sweetly fragrant, showing dark plum, blackcurrant, thyme and almond characters with a hint of gamey complexity. It is succulent and elegantly weighted on the palate, delivering silky texture and rounded mouthfeel, backed by fine, chalky tannins. Harmonious, well structured and lingering. At its best: now to 2024.
