Mac Forbes Hugh Cabernet Blend - Yarra Valley
Bottle size: 750ml
Available online only
Minimum buy quantity no less than 6 bottles.
The Bordeaux blend is still arguably the most successful of all grapes or blends from the Yarra Valley. At relativelylow alcohols the wines are elegant, perfumed and ripe. While approachable as a young wine – the 2011 Hugh will age gracefully for twenty plus years. In this wine Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety and is complimented by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
Vineyard: This fruit is sourced from one small single vineyard in the Yarra Valley subregion of Gruyere which was established in 1996. This vineyard contains all varieties which are carefully managed and dry grown. Being dry grown, special attention is paid to managing the soils for vine health and water retention along with the individual crop-loads for each variety. The site has a gentle northerly aspect with the cabernet sauvignon having a slight westerly exposure. The site has an elevation ranging from 90-112m andtypical Yarra soil profile of grey sandy loam with concretions of siltstones and ironstones throughout.
