Description

Awarded Red Wine of the Year - at the 2023 Halliday Wine Companion Awards.

Philip Rich remarks, “From a cool year, with the poor flowering reducing the crop of the Quintet varieties by around 50%, this is an essay in elegance and understatement. A medium, bright and translucent ruby red, this is beautifully perfumed with aromas of just-ripened blackcurrants, red cherries, rose petals, and gentle cedar notes from the oak. The palate is exceptionally pure-fruited and gently textured. The wine finishes with these incredibly silky, long tannins that are in perfect harmony with the fruit and acid. This majestic wine is gorgeous to drink even now but those that still have some in their cellar in 10–15 years (if not longer) will be grateful.” 2023 Halliday Wine Companion.

The iconic Mount Mary Quintet is one of the jewels of the Yarra Valley. A blend of the five Bordeaux varieties, planted side-by-side on one of the Yarra's most revered sites. This personifies the medium-bodied, regal style of Cabernet blends from this region. The perfectly ripe fruit for this wine was masterfully guided to bottle by young family winemaker, Sam Middleton.

A thing of real beauty. A thing of class. A wine for the cellar to be marvelled at for decades to come.

44% Cabernet sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 18% Cabernet franc, 4% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot

A blend of 44/30/18/4/4% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/cabernet franc/malbec/petit verdot. From a cool year, with the poor flowering reducing the crop of the Quintet varieties by around 50%, this is an essay in elegance and understatement. A medium, bright and translucent ruby red, this is beautifully perfumed with aromas of just-ripened blackcurrants, red cherries, rose petals, and gentle cedar notes from the oak. The palate is exceptionally pure-fruited and gently textured. The wine finishes with these incredibly silky, long tannins that are in perfect harmony with the fruit and acid. This majestic wine is gorgeous to drink even now but those that still have some in their cellar in 10–15 years (if not longer) will be grateful.
