Mt Mary Reflexions Cab Franc 2017
FIVE STARS, JAMES HALLIDAY, THE WINE COMPANION
Superbly refined, elegant and intense Cabernets and usually outstanding and long-lived Pinot Noirs fully justify Mount Mary’s exalted reputation. The determination of the family to continue the business is simply wonderful. JAMES HALLIDAY, The Wine Companion
What is Mt Mary Reflexion I hear you ask? Reflexion is a relatively new label from the Yarra Valley’s most iconic producer. Sam used the label when he has wines that don’t fit in to the usual Mt Mary stable but that he firmly believes deserve the attention of their fans. This incarnation is borne of the fact that in 2017 Sam really loved the expression of their Cabernet Franc as a stand alone variety and had enough to bottle it separately without detracting from the Quintet. We just tasted the wine and I have to say it was a very good decision. When Cab Franc is this good it is quite a special variety and unique in its delivery. This Reflexion is both wonderfully varietal and very obviously Mt Mary. I love it.
