Mount Mary JWDM Cabernet 2015

Sold out

John’s initial and firm belief in 1971 was that Cabernet Sauvignon was the Yarra Valley’s premium grape variety. This sentiment influenced his vision for Mount Mary and in turn drove our decision in making this one-off wine. There is an incredible latent power, elegance and balance to this wine that is testament to a 45+ year old vineyard. The palate on the Mount Mary JWDM Cabernet 2015 shows impressive depth and persistence, with a fruit profile that is darker and more brooding than our flagship Quintet blend typically shows. The gravelly tannic spine is another example of just how great Yarra Cabernet can be. We do not wish to indicate a drinking window but expect the generations of Middletons to follow at Mount Mary will enjoy this wine for many decades to come. – Sam Middleton, Senior Wine Maker, Mount Mary

Perfume. Precision. Power. Heady fragrance of violets over boysenberry, mainly, though a full spectrum of berries are in the mix, pencil, cedar, baking spices, subtle earth and gravel. It’s medium-bodied, plush with ripe berries, tobacco and exotic perfume. Tannin is deep and resonant, dense and gravelly, and for a man who loves his tannin, it’s blissfully good. Finish rolls on and on, all that tannin, savoury flavour and exquisite perfume like the vapour trail of a jet. It’s hard to fault, and so easy to fall in love with. It’s destined to become one of the legends of Australian wine. - 98+ points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front April 2019
