This wine is from the wineries second vineyard called the Ribbon Vale. This vineyard is slightly higher elevation than the original one with aspects to the South and West. This makes for longer time for grapes to ripen and a cooler climate. According to the winery:
"Nose: In line with such a good vintage, the first impression is all about berry fruits – blackberry, mulberry and red currant, sitting over the usual Ribbon Vale vineyard stamp which we think of as leather and eucalypt. This is not to say the wine is simple but rather there is a bright, buoyant note to the aromas, as each of the varieties in the blend signal their presence. Long term barrel age has built in tarry characters and a very light touch of toasty oak, ensuring the typical Cabernet Sauvignon complexities.
Palate: Similarly, the fruit flavours reveal themselves, filling the front and mid-palate with lots of berries and dark jubes. A firm structure sits underneath, with acidity that brightens the flavours, plus Ribbon Vale’s dense tannin providing a concentrated platform on the finish. The oak is light touch right at the end."
This wine is complex with an outstanding elegance. It pairs fantastically with food but is also subtle enough to drink on it's own. If you are looking for the perfect pairing a lovely tender rib steak would make this gem of a wine sparkle!
