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”
