Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is not for everyone thanks to its elegant frame and style. It’s a little too understated for most big red fans. But if there was one wine out there to change the hearts and minds then this just might be it.
Deeply coloured, there is an almost Coonawarra sweetness of blackcurrant fruits matched up with red currants, cedar and crushed leaves plus some serious oak along for the ride. Fruit is then punchy in the mouth with cascades of dark berries driven by fresh acidity and a core of firm tannins before a very long, pure and balanced finish. It’s not quite ready to dance yet but everything is in place for a wine that will drink well for the next decade if not two.
