"We are all creatures of habit (at least I am) but a favourite past-time of mine is trying new wines. Something completely left of centre. Introducing the exciting blend, new to Cellar One, 2019 The Coldstream Guard Rubeus from the famed Levantine Hill sub-region of the Yarra Valley. A blend well worth a try." Jill Upton - Cellar One
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Merlot, this is an assemblage of barrels derived from many individual small batch fermentations. The leading hand of the Cabernet Sauvignon is evident in the dark fruit characters while the input of the other varieties contribute characters of flintiness. Restrained acidity marks the juicy multi-layered palate. Fine fresh powdery tannins help meld the disparate elements together from a sum-of-the-parts blend for a rewarding and deliciously moreish result.
A wine to enjoy now or lay down for five or more years.
