Oakridge Local Vineyard Series Cabernet Sauvignon, Yarra Valley

Oakridge Local Vineyard Series Cabernet Sauvignon, Yarra Valley

Immediately, varietal Cabernet notes of blackcurrant and blueberry, some redcurrant then pencil lead, cedar, dried tobacco, black olive and violets. Oak is a bit-part player, despite spending 16 months in a combination of new and old French barrels, showing pie-like vanilla notes and light brown spice. Distinctly medium-bodied, almost gentle, with soft supple tannins. Despite this, there is a richness to the middle and intensity of flavour again driven by the black fruit elements, and finishing with a wonderful savoury, almost briny tang. This is a refined, classic Yarra Valley Cabernet.
