Yarra Valley Estate Grown wines are sourced from the De Bortoli family vineyards at Dixons Creek in the cool-climate Yarra Valley. The mature, low yielding vines deliver exceptional quality fruit to the winery. This is preserved during winemaking with gentle, low intervention techniques to produce wine with varietal detail and purity. The idea is to create wine with a ‘sense of place’.
Dense, pronounced, brooding and slightly savoury mid-palate with a gentle drying finish.

"Mid-crimson; an elegant and complex bouquet offering redcurrant, cassis, cedar and a little dried herb complexity; the palate is medium-bodied and refined, highly polished and poised, with the palate extension via silky tannins an absolute pleasure; excellent value, high quality cabernet."
Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013, (JUL/2012)
"The Yarra is often overlooked for its cabernet and yet in good years like 2010 it can be superb. This is such a stylish expression of the variety, with a leafy red-scented berry aroma overlayed with some nice oak. The palate is refi ned
and balanced, with superb integration of fruit, oak and tannin. Lingers in the mouth with great persistence."
