Description

Aged Red Wines
The texture of high quality red wine becomes rounder and smoother with age, many of the firmer characters being bevelled by the softening of the tannins (polymerisation) resulting in increased richness and complexity. Red wines lose their youthful fruitiness and develop secondary characters such as chocolate, mocha, leather, sandalwood camphor, mosswood, seaweed and mature cheese.

WINE CLUB: $50.00 – exclusive to wine club members.
Two bottle limit per customer.

Eyes

The 1995 vintage is typified by a garnet colour with purple hues.

Nose

This classic blend offers a huge range of aromas, with ripe berries from blueberry to blackcurrant being particularly intense.

Mouth

Spice and mintiness are clearly evident on the palate and the subtle influence of the specially selected oak is perfectly integrated. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Shiraz all contribute to the complexity and synergy of the blend and the extraordinary structure and persistence on the palate.

Winemaking Notes

Original tasting note: The 1995 vintage conditions were ideal at Blue Pyrenees Estate, in the Pyrenees region of Western Victoria. The yields were seven tonnes per hectare in line with strict Estate standards and the crop had an impressive concentration of flavour.
Further developments at Blue Pyrenees Estate provided new components for the making of this outstanding wine. An additional three blocks of the Estate made the selection for the first time, bringing the total number of selected parcels from 30 to 33. The richness and elegance of the wines require an adapted wood grain, and Blue Pyrenees use specially selected and seasons new French oak Bordeaux barriques. The results after 18 months in oak is a subtle, integrated wine with great harmony.

In the opinion of Vincent Here, Chief Winemaker and General Manager, Blue Pyrenees Estate blends are unique due to the vineyards, terroir, special oak and the blending strategy of the winemaking team. All combine to achieve one goal, a superior intensity of flavours with balance and refinement, a wine both perfect on release and with a cellaring potential for years to come.
