Bright pale ruby, leafy blackcurrant, earth with some oak smoke and red fruit. These combine perfectly with sour cherry, cranberry and red plum with very light tannins and fresh fruit flavours of raspberry and red apple. Structurally generous and open, the drive comes from elevated acidity integrated perfectly. Vibrant and full of life.
This vineyard was originally the source of our sparkling wines, but the quality of the grapes was so too good not to make it into a single vineyard still wine.
Textbook, classic Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - bright, fresh, and juicy. Plenty of concentrated red berry fruits and bramble, refreshing acidity and fine tannins give the wine a silky texture and a long finish.
2019 will go down as one of the great vintages for accessible, bright and fragrant Cabernet. Everything came into balance - The fruit is dark, brooding and mouth coating; the tannins are svelte and long; the acidity is clean and refreshing. It all intertwines seamlessly, to give us a wine we consider to be bright, detailed, elegant and fine.
2021 Cabernet Melbec is a textbook Dominique Portet style of red - bright, fresh and fragrant with elegance and texture that will reward mid-term cellaring.
The 2022 vintage has bright colour and lifted notes of dark plums, spice and liquorice come through strongly. This year the wine is showing more medium bodied character and finesse, announced through silky fine tannin structure and balanced acidity through to the finish.
The pinnacle of the Dominique Portet wines, André is made only in exceptional vintages - 2015 is only the 6th release. It is named after Dominique Portet’s father and Ben’s grandfather, 8th generation winemaker and former Technical Director (vineyard and winery manager) at the esteemed Château Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac, Bordeaux.
