Mount Mary Quintet

Australia's premier cool climate Cabernet. It was John Middleton's dream to create such a wine and purchased the Mount Mary property in the Yarra Valley in 1971 to persue this dream. Quintet is his dream realised and is a blend of the classic Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

The 2009 vintage has proved to be one of the greatest vintages in living memory and the Gruaud has come along for the ride nicely. Still showing that trademark poise Saint-Julien is famous for, yet with powerful fruit weight and close to immortal length. Notes of licquorice, pencil shavings and blackberry bush that is more akin to more fruit forward appellations. A ripping example from a great vintage.
