Winemaking Notes

The Pyrenees region of Australia is best known for its bold savoury red wines & the “Estate” from Blue Pyrenees uses blending of the Estate vineyard’s best components to consistently reinforce this reputation. The 2016/2017 growing season was the wettest since 2010/11 with rains throughout winter & spring, then a mild summer & a warm dry autumn to finish which resulted in good vine canopies & above average size crops. The individual vineyard components were kept separate — initially in fifteen tonne static & three tonne open fermenters — then also while maturing in new (40%), two year-old (30%) & four year-old (30%) French & American oak barriques for a full 24 months. Final selections, then blending, a light egg white fining & bottling all occurred in June & July 2019.

Sam Kim

Gorgeously complex and engaging, the wine shows blackcurrant, spiced plum, tapenade and cedar characters on the nose with a lovely floral overtone. The palate delivers excellent concentration and density while remaining refined and structured with fine chalky tannins. It’s wonderfully harmonious and sophisticated, making it immensely satisfying. A blend of 68% cabernet sauvignon, 22% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 5% malbec.
