Seville Estate Old Vine Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


Yarra Cabernet seems to have almost fallen off the vinous map, even though there was a time when it ranked up there with regions like Coonawarra and Margaret River. With wines like this, it is very difficult to understand how that could have happened.

As with all the Reserve reds, it is from vines planted in 1972. Only older French oak used, with wild yeasts. A glorious nose with blackberry notes, cassis, tobacco leaf. A hint of blackcurrant jam. This is supple and seamless. Abundant but ultra-fine tannins. Knife-edge balance. Great length. A wine with twenty years ahead of it. Stunning stuff and a brilliant Yarra Cabernet.
