Dominique Portet is one of the Yarra Valley's wineries, with their 'Fontaine' range of wines consistently delivering high quality at very reasonable prices. The 2020 Dominique Portet Fontaine Cabernet Sauvignon is another soft and medium-bodied example of Yarra Valley Cabernet.
This offers plenty of plum and berry fruit flavours supported by lively fresh acidity and restrained oak. A lovely drinking Cabernet ideal for enjoying in the short to medium term, this is a relative bargain for a Yarra Cabernet.
"The blend is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. We picked and sorted all varieties by hand. We de-stemmed the grapes and gently crushed them before fermenting them at relatively cool temperatures to accentuate the beautiful aromatics of the Cabernet. The wine stayed on skins for two weeks, during which time colour and tannins were gently extracted. We then gave the wine 10 months to mature in French oak barrels, 30% of which were new."- Dominique Portet Wines.
