Blue Pyrenees Estate began in the 1960's as a joint venture owned by Remy Martin, (famous for one of the world’s most expensive Cognacs), and luxury Champagne house, Krug. After a chequered history that included changes in winemaking and ownership, in 1982, the first wines under the now familiar 'Blue Pyrenees' label were born.It was a time when other Australian wineries were thinking only of straight varietal wines. Instead, the company decided to adopt a philosophy similar to the great chateaux of Bordeaux, creating a blended red and rather than putting the varietal names on the label, naming it after the estate itself. While it seems rather tame by today's standards, the packaging concept of a blue label on a red wine created considerable controversy in its day, but immediately won packaging awards in Australia and the United States. The 2008 release is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 1% Shiraz. Outstanding impenetrable inky black colour with black dark crimson hue. Perfumed aromas of perfectly ripened blackcurrant, cassis and liquorice with some underlying cedary characters and spicy end notes. The palate delivers concentrated flavours of ripe blackcurrant, ripe dark mulberry, cigar box, a touch of mint and spice. Dryish finish with solid sturdy tannin structure in perfect balance that will fully integrate with time. Excellent depth and richness with long persistent blackcurrant, dark ripe mulberry, cedar, cigar box and spice aftertaste.
