2014 Estate Cabernet is Now Avalaible at Cellar Door

Visit the Yarra Valley Cellar Door over the holidays and try our fabulous new relesase 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Read the oustanding reviews:

“Born from vines that average almost 50 years of age, this is a big bold cabernet of deep concentration, lavish, palate-sticking tannins and ferrous, savoury character. It’s heady in perfume of blackcurrants, plums, gum leaf and blonde tobacco. The palate is an assertive thrust of choc-berry flavours, sweet earthiness and rib-sticking, tacky-textured tannins. It’s a wine of immense presence now, and should be tamed gradually with cellaring, to reveal more nuance and detail.” Mike Bennie, Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine June/July 2017

"It’s a big black beast of a red, hints of bitumen accentuating the ripeness. Again, however, it’s pulled back from the edge of overripeness by the depth of fruit and grippy tannins. It’s just a fraction too warm this vintage, a little bit soupy on the edges. Impressive concentration can’t be sneezed at however – it goes on and on, and deserves plaudits on depth of flavour alone. Best drinking: 2019-2033. 17.7/20, 92/100. 14%, $45. Would I buy it? A glass." Andrew Graham, Australian Wine Review.

2014 Estate Shiraz is Now Avaliable in Cellar Door

Visit the Yarra Valley Cellar Door over the holidays and try our fabulous new relesase 2014 Estate Shiraz.

Read the oustanding reviews:

“As ever a big wine, but not ugly. Dark fruit, dark chocolate oak, dark, warming flavours. There’s an effortless blackness here – a deep, all consuming black, licoricey, almost tarry width. It’s fractionally boozy, but not dessicated, just driven by black, almost molasses intensity. Packs a massive wallop of flavour, with a length that is something else. Impressive, but can you forgive the alcohol warmth in a quest for length like that? I can. Will live forever too. Best drinking: 2020-2034. 18/20, 93/100. Would I buy it? A glass or two now, more later.”                     Andrew Graham, Australian Wine Review.
