Dalwhinnie Cabernet Sauvignon

Dalwhinnie Moonambel Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Central Victoria, Victoria   |    750ml   |    14%

The Dalwhinnie story began in 1976 when Ewan Jones purchased this unique amphitheatre at Moonambel in the cool-climate of Western Victoria's Pyrenees region. The 2015 vintage reds from Dalwhinnie represent the 36th releases of their acclaimed Moonambel Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2015 Dalwhinnie Cabernet Sauvignon is another classic Dalwhinnie Cabernet; bright and lively it displays freshness with sweet red berries, cassis, cinnamon and a host of bright notes gracing the palate. Silky, layered and with impeccable structure, this should cellar for many years to come.

"96 Points. Clear, deep crimson-purple; just as you would expect from the region, fully mature vines, the winemaker and the judicious use of French oak. The flavours are deep and deceptively powerful, tannins plentiful, but submerged in the fruit, the overall balance and length faultless. Alcohol: 14% Drink By: 2040 Closure: Screwcap" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2019.

"95 Points. This is impressively powerful with great extract and structure. There is a smoky, cedar/ cigarbox aromas and this, plus the great concentration and massive structure, remind of a high-level Bordeaux. The oak is a trifle edgy with a note of sawn-timber" - Gourmet Traveller Wine, Huon Hooke, Feb / March 2019.

Dalwhinnie is located near the tiny village of Moonambel in the heart of the Pyrenees region of Western Victoria, Australia and is a super premium producer of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. After 25 years of growing grapes, the 18 hectare vineyard is now fully mature, producing true varietal fruit characters with great concentration of flavours.

At 595 metres above sea-level Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest range, this unique bowl of vines is a world unto itself, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills, forming an amphitheatre nestled into the ranges.

Ownership of Dalwhinnie has remained within one family. In 1972 the remote property was purchased. The founder, Ballarat architect Ewan Jones, established the vineyard in 1976. His eldest son David, has managed it since 1983 and, with his wife, Jenny, has owned it since 1994. It's the kind of stability that one finds in the greatest estates all around the world.

"Our 36th vintage of the Dalwhinnie Cabernet. The colour is dark red-purple, the bouquet picks up sandalwood, black berries and hints of cedar cigar box. The wine has immense power and structure - full bodied and rich, very concentrated in its delivery with superb ripe grainy oak tannins. A beautiful Cabernet - one for the cellar."- Dalwhinnie Wines.
