Blue Pyrenees has taken on a modern tac in recent years, as shown by wines like this. Plump, juicy purple fruit, a little dash of mint and then a really serious dry finish. Power, but not at the price of being heavy. Just a solid big red.

Expert Reviews

94 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitThis is elegant and complex on the nose showing spiced plum, ripe strawberry, roasted nut and cake spice aromas, followed by a supple palate that is juicy and lingering. Wonderfully composed and harmonious with a lingering spicy finish. Refined and stylish. At its best: now to 2026.

How's it taste?

Fragrant ripe blueberry fruit aromas plus pepper, mushroom & toasty oak. The palate shows dark fruits & liquorice intermingled with toasty vanillin oak notes, preceding a long lasting, pepper & spicy tannin finish. The medium weight but firm structure & fruit vibrancy of this wine ensure it has many possible food matches.

How was it made?

Made from Estate grapes in the original Blue Pyrenees vineyard, the fruit matured in a mix of new and old oak barrels and showing distinctive Pyrenees character.

Who made it?

Blue Pyrenees Estate, (formerly the Chateau Remy), was founded by Remy Martin in 1963. Passionate about discovering the potential for sparkling wine in cool climate conditions, the presence of Remy Martin in Australia paved the way for the likes of Champagne Houses Moet and Chandon as well as Louis Roederer to purchase vineyards and produce wine in Australia. Set amidst the idyllic blue-hued Pyrenees range in Western Victoria, the estate was later purchased in 2002 by Chris Smales and Andrew Koerner along with a small group of Sydney businessmen who continue to craft subtle and thought provoking styles from Pyrenees fruit. True to their origins, they are still producing beautiful sparkling wines too. A happy medium between ample sunshine and cool southern ocean winds ensures Blue Pyrenees grapes ripen at moderate temperatures, yielding vibrant fruit flavours. Various soil types are found at the Estate including brown sandy loam, gravel beds, rocky quartz, sandstone and clay. This diverse range ensures a dynamic range of wines with distinct flavour profiles. The Blue Pyrenees range includes Sparkling, Varietal and Reserve ranges as well as the Richardson and Museum series.
