Description

The chunky bottle of this Yarra Valley Cabernet deceives as to what lies inside.  Amphora aged on skins for 150 days and then pressed into old French oak for a further 150 days, this is a highly aromatic, sophisticated and somewhat elegant expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.



 “It’s bright garnet, potpourri- scented and glides onto the front palate with ripe blackberry flavour. Cherry, spice, mint and savoury oak integrate on the middle and the finish has supple earthy tannins. Drink with honey and soy glazed pork fillet and cellar for nine years. 5 stars”


John Lewis, Canberra Times, Jun 2021

2018 chateau saransot dupre, cru bourgeois superieur listrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!
