Known as the “impossible wine” because of the steepness of the land from which its fruit was grown, presence of underground, rocky seams and outcrops that were thought to be insurmountable. In keeping with the traditional varieties of Bordeaux, this wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
This is the fourth release of our flagship signature red blend, from a benchmark Yarra Valley vintage, and epitomises our commitment to honour and reflect the finest examples of the classic Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines upon which our region’s enviable reputation was forged and cemented. It features brooding restrained fruit characters of cassis, blackberry, jasmine and sage leaf with complex savoury elements of clove, sandalwood, leather and star anise. Suppleness on the palate combines with flavours of berry compote, smoked paprika and cocoa nib.
