Mount Mary Quintet 2021

Where - Yarra Valley, Victoria
What -Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot
Body - Full
Style - Indulge

 Our vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc
(15%), Malbec (5%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The percentage of each variety that goes into
the final blend changes with the season as factors such as fruitfulness and fruit set vary.

The 2021 is a Quintet to sit comfortably alongside our famed 1990, 2015 and 2019 renditions. The nose offers red cherry, violets, spice and some earthy undertones. The palate is driven by red fruits, intertwined with spicy French oak; however, it is really the quality of tannin that defines this wine on the palate. Not since the 2013 vintage have we seen this quality and quantity of fine grain tannin present, giving this wine such an appealing structure and persistence through the palate. It will age tremendously well for at least 3 decades. – Sam Middleton, Mount Mary
