Melba "Mimi" Yarra Valley 2010

Cabernet Sauvignon 85% Nebbiolo 9%, Shiraz 6% 12.5% a/v

Ditto everything I wrote about Lucia and here's what a couple of othere thought about it:

"93 Points, Delightfully complex, balanced and full of character, with an earthy, dusty bouquet of sweet raspberries, cassis, dark plums and cedary oak lifted by spicy, leather notes and a hint of meatiness. It's long, fine and elegant, with sweet, juicy flavours of blackcurrant, raspberries and dark plums underpinned by fine, powdery tannins, finishing with earthy, savoury aspects and meaty pinot-like notes." Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2014, November 2013

"93 Points, Bright, clear light crimson; an example of the 'different drum' style that Steven Webber seeks to make; very fine and elegant, freshness and balance prized more than depth of flavour. Here cassis, red cherry and spice rule the roost, oak and tannins barely perceptible." James Halliday, Australian Wine
Companion 2013, July 2012

Our Price: $16 per bottle by the dozen
