André was Dominique Portet’s father, role model and mentor. The eigth generation in a distinguished lineage of vigneron, André raised Dominique amongst the world's most sacred vines during his tenure as manager at the illustrious Château Lafite-Rothschild. An assemblage of parcels Cabernet Sauvignon, hand picked and hand sorted from elite blocks in the Pyrenees and Yarra Valley, Andre can only ever be made from the most exceptional vintages.
The Pyrenees portion is picked off forty year old vines grown to gravel/quartz soils, a terroir that's ideal for elegance and structure. The Yarra Valley component is sourced off twenty year old vines, planted to propitious clay and broken rock soils, contributing mid palate flesh and freshness. An essential part of Andre's excellence is the exacting work over the sorting line, entirely eliminating green stalks and grapes which can be borderline over or under ripe. Winemaking is highly traditional, fruit is destemmed, gently crushed and treated to four weeks on skins, where it develops splendid softness and remarkable complexity, followed by a course of eighteen months in an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak.
TASTING NOTES
Dark opaque scarlet. Black fruit nose, perfumed with violets and blueberry, ribena, meat grills and dark cherry jube. Blackberry and cassis palate, layered with wine gum and licorice notes, framed by a cosset of luxurious French oak, the final word in tannins, statueasque, chiselled yet affable, expansive yet reserved and refined.

More About Dominique Portet Wines
Dominique Portet the man, the vision, the story
The Portet family lays claim to a singular accolade in the Australian wine Industry. Dominique is the ninth generation in his family to be committed to winemaking, yet he is the first to establish a winery and label bearing the family name. Since 1976 he has lived in Australia to create a family. "I'm at home here, I think my roots are here now." Although he now calls Australia home, Dominique Portet's bond with Bordeaux cannot be broken. His family has had links with the wine industry since 1780. "It is longer, but most of the records were lost during the revolution." The earliest document dated 1720, relates to the sale of Eaux de vie by Portet to the Martells. Dominique Portet»
