“Blue Pyrenees Estate is consistently one of the best-value red wine producers in the country … the prices are a gift.”
Top Australian critic Huon Hooke is not only a big fan of this estate, he also has high praise for their plush Cabernet, rating it an impressive 94 points: “ … the bouquet is very attractive, showing violets and both red and blue berries, the palate intense and focused, concentrated but not overly big-boned, with a beautifully elegant, lingering palate of model line. The tannins are fine and subtly firm, doing their job by gentle persuasion rather than brute force. The structure is well controlled and impeccably balanced. An excellent wine – and amazing value.”
Throw in James Halliday’s praise (another 94-point rating) and you’ve got one impressive Cab that will make a great impression on guests.
Winemaker Andrew Koerner hand harvested the finest Cab grapes from the estate’s top vineyard sites, adding dashes of Merlot and Cabernet Franc (for a touch of plummy, floral richness). Eighteen months in French and American barriques gives the wine its spicy kick.
