2017 Blue Pyrenees Estate Section 26 Cabernet Sauvignon

The Collective Review

Can you feel the power? This is real Cabernet Sauvignon in the true Pyrenees mode. There's tannins, genuinely full-throttled dark choc berries and mint, the style proudly full-flavoured and bursting with fruit and so much more. Blue Pyrenees have the advantage of an impressive old vine resource which delivers that extra edge of intensity and you can really see it here.

Tasting Notes

Fragrant blackberry fruits, varietal leafy notes plus toasty cedar oak aromas. Ripe cassis fruit complimented by tell tale Pyrenees mint, pepper ,spice and bracken with cedary oak flavours. Medium bodied and full flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty fine grain tannins which contribute to an elegant, persistent dry finish. This wine is unmistakably varietal Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemakers Note

The Victorian Pyrenees region is renowned for consistently producing Cabernet Sauvignon displaying complexity and definitive regional character, especially in cooler years like the 2016 – 2017 growing season, which provided soaking winter rains, a mild wet spring, warm stormy summer, then a dry autumn to finish. Produced predominantly from the single block- Section 26, with the addition of a small parcel of Shiraz from our estate vineyard, the Blue Pyrenees Section 26 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 was fermented to dryness in two-tonne open fermenters and 15-tonne static fermenters. Subsequently, the wine was matured for 24 months in a combination of older French and American oak casks..
