Out in Victoria's west country, planted to rocky scenic uplands, parched vines struggle to survive, yielding tiny little berries of the most concentrated and intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon. Ballarat architect Ewan Jones established Dalwhinnie in 1976, his eldest son David has managed it since 1983. It's the kind of family devotion to winemaking that one finds in the great estates of the world. At 595 metres above sea level, Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest crags, this unique bowl of vines is a world unto itself, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills.
Dark cherry red. Fine elegant cedar cigar box perfume with lifted dark berry fruits, clean and varietally articulate. Very fresh. Very tight and highly strung, displaying fruit, oak and acid in fine balance. The harmony of these three elements is impeccable for such a young wine. Shows all the character and style of a grand cru left bank bordeaux. The super league of Victorian Cabernet Sauvignon.
