Dominique Portet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
This wine has come so far in the last few years. Dominique’s more structured Bordelais style has been softened by now head winemaker Ben Portet. In addition the family bought the world’s most respected sorting machines so after hand picking the Cabernet Sauvignon only the best and healthiest grapes make the wine which has taken this wine to new heights of quality. The grapes came from two Yarra Valley sites, both of which are home to mature vines (20+ years) on soils of sandstone over clay. The first, in Coldstream, is the cooler of the two and gives aromas in the red-fruit spectrum. The second site is at Steels Creek on a warm, steep west-facing slope. Aged for 14 months in French oak (40% new).
