Only 45 kilometres east of Melbourne’s CBD, the Yarra Valley is recognised as one of Australia’s foremost cool climate wine producing regions.
The St Huberts Vineyard is located at the gateway of the beautiful region on the Valley floor. With a long history of being renowned for Cabernet Sauvignon, other varieties include Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Roussanne. The oldest vines were planted in 1966 and generally yield low crops with intense fruit flavour, depth and concentration.
At an elevation of 50 to 80 metres, the St Huberts Vineyard sits on a gently sloping site facing north-west, maximising sun exposure and resulting in generous, fuller styled wines. Rainfall is slightly winter dominant and around 750 millimetres per annum. The soil is well drained grey clay loam over a clay layer of 500 to 600 millimetres in depth.
The wine's colour is med-dark garnet with crimson hues with a nose that displays ripe Cabernet notes of plums and cassis, a hint of violets over a backdrop of leafy regional character. The fruit is complexed with earthy notes and supporting chocolate / cedar oak. The palate is medium to full bodied, with excellent depth of flavour and an even - rich and round mouth feel. Ripe fleshy plum and chocolate flavours continue from the nose, and the finish is long with supporting fine powdery tannins. Should age nicely. “A classic Yarra Cab…”
