The Reserve Cabernet was first made in 1992 and in most years is sourced from fruit grown on the thirty year old Coldstream Hills G Block. As a later maturing variety, Cabernet Sauvignon requires careful site selection with north facing hillside slopes being preferable.

Nuances of dark chocolate and nutmeg spice enhance the wine which are supported by seamless French oak. Layered and textural, the palate finishes with a characteristic fine-grained tannin profile.

Silky and concentrated, this wine displays the essence of cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon and will reward careful cellaring for at least fifteen years.

"Both a textbook and a beautiful example of Yarra Valley cabernet. It's gently briary, but its core is pure mid-weight blackcurrant with forest berry notes and slips of oak. Tannin winds through the back half of the wine and length is exemplary. At all points it feels ripe and well fruited. This will age superbly. "
