Expert Reviews

Dense red-purple; blackberry, plum and milk chocolate flavours are swathed in oak on the bouquet and palate alike, the tannins ripe and, ideally, would flex their muscles more to balance the flavours that precede them.

Rating 90 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Copanion (JAN/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varieties

69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot & 1% Shiraz.

Colour

Bright ruby red

Aroma

Fragrant red berry fruit, forest floor complexity and classy oak aromas.

Palate

A generous mouthful of ripe dark plum complemented by forest flavours of mint leaves, mushroom and cedary oak. The richness and even palate structure of this blended red is created by abundant and integrated fine grain tannins, resulting in a persistent finish characterised by lingering choc-mint flavours.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Blue Pyrenees - then called Chateau Remy - was established in Western Victoria in 1963 by Remy Martin. Remy Martin was committed to discovering the superb sparkling wine potential of the worlds cool climate wine regions and in fact subsequently became the force behind Champagne Houses Krug and Charles Heidsieck. Blue Pyrenees Estate was among the modern Australian wine industry’s first ventures into cool climate viticulture. Ample amounts of sunshine ensure our grapes ripen to full maturity with the heat moderated by altitude vineyards and southerly ocean winds. The climate is warm enough to give concentration and power, yet cool enough to give vibrancy and elegance, resulting in remarkable wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Estate is surrounded by the picturesque blue-hued Pyrenees range named for its beauty and similarity to the Pyrenees mountains bordering France and Spain, though some think this explorer’s memory of what constituted a mountain may have been distorted by his long voyage across the flat seas of the Pacific!

French eccentricity was the hallmark of the Estate and the brand’s creation. In 2002 the Estate was purchased by a group of Australian wine-passionate businessmen. Eccentricity, with a New World twist, is guaranteed to continue with a new, innovative management and winemaking team at Blue Pyrenees Estate.
