2015 Dominique Portet Cabernet Sauvignon
Trophy: 2017 Royal Melbourne Wine Show, Victorian Wines of Provenance
A true believer in the nobility of Cabernet is winemaker Ben Portet. Good man. Vintage 2015 was a very fine year for Yarra Cabernet.
Black fruit, pencils, some vanilla custard powder oak, sweet black tobacco. Medium bodied, deep and rich and fruit, with savoury flavour mingling with chocolate and black fruit, lush fine grained tannin layered through, black olive and dried herb perfume pushing long on the finish. Excellent. Integrity and structure. Fine Yarra Cabernet here.
