Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, grown to the higher altitudes of fine Yarra Valley vineyards, are deeply enthused by the extended growing seasons, brought about by cooler climes. Such slower ripening conditions encourage layers of intense flavours and varietal complexity. This unlabelled Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon articulates the influence of the region and skill of the winemaker. Outstanding value in a Cleanskin, an effusive wine of ripe varietal blackberry and cassis characters, gentle background oak and measured, disciplined tannins.
The Yarra Valley has been known to offer idyllic growing conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon since the middle of the nineteenth century. Vines were first planted in 1838 and viticulture spread rapidly. The earliest wines were so good that they were exported throughout the British Empire and gained much critical acclaim, particularly for Cabernet. The area was rediscovered as terre superieure for Cabernet Sauvignon in the late 1960s when the region was re established. This cleanskin has been crafted by a notable Yarra Valley estate who probably never anticipated releasing it without a label. Oak maturation has enabled the wine to attain finer balance and complexity, whilst softening tannins and enhancing the fruit.
TASTING NOTES
Deep cherry red hue. Aromas of sweet berries dominate the nose, varietal notes of violet and creme de cassis are matched by earth and herbaceousness, whisps of cocoa oak, the leafyness of tobacco and mint. Rich and full palate, it delivers varietal fruit, luscious black currant and cassis, the darkness of boysenberry, cosseted by clove oak and supported by firm tannins. Match with ripe cheese, rib steaks or game.
