Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia
Varietals: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Malbec
Vines: Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 1970 (clone unknown) and again when the vineyard was expanded in 2000 (SA125 clone). Some Merlot was available post blending our Yarra Yering wines and so we were able to utilize that here to build depth to the palate. Recent plantings of Malbec on the Warramate vineyard were undertaken because we love what Malbec brings to our other Cabernet blends, a whole lot of energy!
Cellaring: Given the youthful exuberance this wine is ready for immediate enjoyment. Expect a mellow and graceful evolution up to 5 years under suitable cellaring conditions.
Analysis: 13.5% Alc.
