Background

Our Over the Shoulder wines are great examples of wines that typify varietal characteristics of the Yarra Valley. Wines which are fresh, vibrant and medium bodied.

Tasting Notes

Textbook, medium bodied cabernet. Blackcurrant, poached plum and cassis are followed by hints of cranberry, cherry pip and a light leafiness. The palate is soft, dense and concentrated with a web of filigreed tannin encasing the black fruits and cedar. Bright acidity helps to balance the wine between savoury and sweet, but with a lip smacking and refreshing finish. Classic cool-climate cabernet.

Vineyard Notes

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (69%) and Merlot (31%) sourced from high quality vineyards located in Coldstream, Seville and Wandin East.

Winemaker's Notes

Traditional methods such as lengthy post fermentation maceration and maturation in French oak casks have been used to craft this wine.

Vintage Notes

A long, cool growing season with average crops and abundant rainfall has resulted in wines with outstanding varietal flavour.
