Our Price: $140.00
(RRP $160.00)
98 Points - James Halliday

From the oldest (circa 50yo) vines on the Melba Vineyard. Its extreme power and concentration is balanced by the freshness achieved at the modest alcohol. Those who have long championed the cause of Yarra Valley cabernet will be very happy to welcome this wine into the fold.


  • Fruit is destemmed followed by light crushing. Individual vineyard batches were fermented on skins for up to 30 days. At the desired balance of fruit and tannin extraction, each batch was gently pressed. The individual parcels were racked to oak after pressing. Regular rackings over an 18-month period ensured the individual wines are at their best prior to blending. Matured in individually selected high quality French oak casks for 15 months (40% new).

    Vintage: 2015
    Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
    Appellation: Yarra Valley, VIC
