This secret offer is the personal project of the current Wine Companion’s ‘Winemaker of the Year’ whose CV includes stints at Wirra Wirra, Seppelt, Punt Road and Penley Estate.

A beautifully fleshed Yarra Valley Cabernet that’s in its peak drinking zone.

Deep dark red black colour with a dark red to brick red hue. An intense bouquet of blackcurrant and mulberry floods the nostrils with hints of black olives, earth, spicy cedar, tobacco and dried herbs lending further complexity. Rich dark to black currant and mulberry fruits are layered across the medium bodied palate with a silken feel. Cedary tobacco leaf like characters, dried herb, earth and spicy black olive elements add further interest through the back half. Ripe, velvet smooth tannins concluding long, beautifully fleshed and savoury.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
Alc. 13%

Other Reviews….
Hand-picked, destemmed whole berries, 50% 2 weeks on skins, 50% 4 weeks, blended and matured for 11 months in oak (25% new). A fresh, medium-bodied wine, everything where it should be, including fully ripe cassis-inflected fruit. Drink by 2037.
