Cabernet Sauvignon Yarra Valley Victoria

It is ultimately an empathy for the grape and respect for the shared experiences of winemaking pioneers which drive the Portet wineworks, nestled amongst the flourishing vineyards of Victoria. It is from these propitious sites on the benign aspects of Yarra Valley, that Dominique Portet identifies auspicious parcels, so akin to the peerless quality of harvest that he husbanded during his childhood amongst the vines of Château Lafite.

Making wine has always been a family affair for the Portets. Dominique is the ninth recorded generation in a family of vignerons dating back to eighteenth century France. A love of winemaking traditions developed from growing up amongst the vineyards. Arriving in Australia 1976, Portet quickly became an integral part of the Victorian wine industry. For the Porterts, wine is life, it has a cycle from earth to table, it is the first love. Ben Portet has worked under the direction of Brian Croser and Con Moshos at Petaluma, at Taltarni with his father, the Napa Valley and South Africa, in Bordeaux with Philippe Blanc of Chateau Beychevelle, in Reims with Louis Roederer, and the Rhone Valley where he specialised in Hermitage Syrah.
Beet red hues, darker robes. Bouqets of currant and cassis, dark cherry and coffee/ cocoa complexed by light dusty spice and pencil notes. A finely structured Cabernet of solid, savoury yet silky tannins, blackcurrants and bay leaf/ green peppercorn/ spice notes over a backdrop of controlled oak. Unequivocally Yarra Valley in its articulation of Cabernet Sauvignon, drink magnificently on release whilst relatively young.
