Fragrant blackberry fruits, varietal leafy notes plus toasty cedar oak aromas.
Ripe blackcurrant fruit complimented by choc-mint, undergrowth & 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
The Victorian Pyrenees region is renowned for consistently producing Cabernet Sauvignon displaying complexity & definitive regional character, especially in cooler years like the 2016–2017 growing season, which provided soaking winter rains, a mild wet spring, warm stormy summer, then a dry autumn to finish. Produced from select parcels of grapes sourced from our estate vineyard, the Blue Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 was fermented to dryness in two-tonne open fermenters & 15-tonne static fermenters. Subsequently, the wine was matured for 24 months in a combination of older French & American oak plus 10% tank matured with staves.

Medium-weight, translucent crimson colour. A complex mix of spicy, leafy aromas and just-ripe blackcurrant fruit. Dark soy and cedary oak. Finely-boned and elegant, oak and grape tannin meld very well with black and blue berries. A quiet aristocracy to it.
