Blue Pyrenees Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (Victoria)
The Blue Pyrenees Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is ruby red in colour with fragrant blackberry fruits, varietal leafy notes plus toasty cedar oak aromas. Ripe blackcurrant fruit complimented by choc-mint, undergrowth & cedar oak flavours. Proudly medium bodied with classical Cabernet Sauvignon structure of abundant fine grain tannins which contribute to an elegant, persistent dry finish. This wine is unmistakably varietal Cabernet Sauvignon.
Blue Pyrenees Estate was established in 1963 by the French company Remy Martin, and was among the modern Australian wine industry’s first ventures into cool climate viticulture.
Today, Blue Pyrenees is 100 per cent Australian owned and is led by Chief Winemaker Andrew Koerner. Proud of the fact that all of their wines, including the Blue Pyrenees Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, are made from grapes grown in their vineyards and produced in their estate winery, Blue Pyrenees Estate are committed to making authentic, world class-quality wines.
The Victorian Pyrenees region is renowned for consistently producing Cabernet Sauvignon displaying complexity & definitive regional character, especially in cooler years like the 2016–2017 growing season, which provided soaking winter rains, a mild wet spring, warm stormy summer, then a dry autumn to finish. Produced from select parcels of grapes sourced from our estate vineyard, the Blue Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 was fermented to dryness in two-tonne open fermenters & 15-tonne static fermenters. Subsequently, the wine was matured for 24 months in a combination of older French & American oak plus 10% tank matured with staves.
