97 Points | "A drop-dead bargain" - James Halliday
The 2019 Dominique Portet Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec is a new cuvee, which sits between Portet's popular Fontaine range and their Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. A wonderful example of the style that made the Yarra Valley famous, this blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Malbec delivers a medium-bodied, complex and impeccably structured red wine with a long life ahead of it.
"97 Points. 93/7% cabernet/ malbec. Hand-picked fruit, berry sorted and crushed. On skins for 22 days. Matured 14 months in French oak (30% new). Bright, clear colour; this is about as good as one could get from the Yarra Valley in a medium-bodied frame, its purity is wonderful. A drop-dead bargain. Screwcap. 13.5% alc. To 2034. $38." - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2022.
Dominique Portet’s French lineage dates back to 1720 and the family’s sale of eaux de vie to the Martell family. Several generations later his father André Portet became régisseur (vineyard and winery manager) of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac.
