The wine is made only in exceptional vintages and honours the faith and learning on which our 10-generation winemaking heritage is built. 2012 marks the third release of the wine. It comprises 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Pyrenees and Yarra Valley. The Pyrenees fruit is from 40-year-old vines grown on gravel/quartz soils, ideal for elegance and structure. The Yarra fruit comes from 20-year-old vines on soils with more clay and broken rock. It adds mid-palate flesh and cool fruit freshness.It was then aged for 18 months in tight-grained French oak (60% new).
