Product Description

Many of you won't need reminding that this gentleman has a pretty good pedigree when it come to working with Cabernet and friends in the Yarra - Mac cut his teeth as winemaker with the late John Middleton at Mount Mary. Mac's justifiably delighted with the 2010 incarnation of this classic Yarra blend and it is certainly a wine worth shouting about. A blend of (mostly) Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec make an appearance, too - 'Hugh' comes from a dry-grown site that Mac rates as the finest he has worked with. The 2010 vintage was also pretty handy and allowed Mac the opportunity to pick entirely based on the flavour profile of the grapes. The finished wine is beautifully ripe yet weighs in at a modest, digestible 12.4%. "You can take the man out of Mount Mary..." The lifted nose has loads of squishy blackcurrants and spices while the open knit, juicy palate shows fresh, pure, expressive berry and blackcurrant fruit and a long and creamy finish. It's a super confident wine all the hip-swinging balance of a great vintage. Holds its line beautifully.
