A robust excellent Cabernet. Juicy, and full of rich dark fruit and plum flavours, a good leafy aroma and beautiful weight and texture from the unfiltered production. A fantastic bottle of modern avant-garde cabernet from Yarra valley.
The grapes for this are sourced from the Payten & Jones vineyards in a warmer part of the Yarra Valley. Rivar Mayer then makes the wines from these parcels. He uses little extraction, and prefers a natural approach and the wine is bottled unfiltered.
