Blue Pyrenees was established as Chateau Remy in 1963 by Remy Martin of France and has since become well known for their Bordeaux styled Cabernet Sauvignon. The estate was developed under advisement of the great Colin Preece and Maurice O'Shea's Hunter Valley management team. Victoria's Pyrenees have since become renowned for statuesque Cabernet wines, displaying great complexity, superior concentration and definitive regionality. Very few viticultural precincts in Australia can lay claim to doing Cabernet so very well and so consistently.
Cabernet is the most consistent high quality performer for Blue Pyrenees. The vineyard is surrounded by the picturesque blue hued Pyrenees, so named for the beauty and similarity to its namesake range of mountains along the border of Spain and France. The climate is warm enough to develop concentration and power in the grapes, yet cool enough to achieve elegance and sophistication, translating into generous wines with ripe tannins and solid structure. Estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon is vinified to dryness in a mix of two tonnes open fermenters and fifteen tonnes static fermenters before twenty months maturation in a combination of seasoned and new French and American oak barriques. Alcohol 13.7%
TASTING NOTES
Bright ruby red in colour. Fragrant red berry fruit, regional mint and classy French oak aromas. A generous mouthful of ripe dark berries complemented by forest flavours of eucalypt, mint leaves, earth and cedary oak. Full bodied with classical varietal structure and abundant fine grain tannins which contribute to an elegant, persistent finish characterised by lingering, vinous chocolate flavours.

More About Blue Pyrenees Wines
The Pyrenees region of Central Victoria is the third oldest of the State's vignobles
The mountain range was named by the noted explorer and surveyor Major Thomas Mitchell, for its raw beauty and similarities to the Pyrenees in south western France, where Mitchell had served as a young Army officer. The first grower of vines for winemaking in the Avoca area was a man named MacKereth, who planted his vines in 1848. His vineyards grew to supply the thirsty miners working in the then thriving old mining industry. Blue Pyrenees»
