There was good winter rainfall in 2012 creating excellent soil moisture. Early heat in spring and a warm dry summer led to an early harvest, but cool conditions in autumn allowed optimal ripeness in Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. This wine benefits from a blend of grapes from four vineyards in the Yarra Valley and the Upper Yarra, all with mature vines aged between 15 and 25 years. The fruit was hand harvested beginning in late-March and the must was fermented in static overhead fermenters over 14 days. The wine was aged for 15 months in French oak barriques, one third new.

This is a full-bodied, rich wine with powerful aromas of red berries, earthy complexity and hints of spice and blackcurrant. The palate has plenty of ripe berry fruits and spice as well as earthy depth and beautifully balanced tannins. Drink with rare Victorian Wagyu beef. GARY BALDWIN
