Fruit for De Bortoli’s Gulf Station range of wines comes both from owner’s vineyards and from other low yielding premium vineyards in the Yarra Valley. For De Bortoli Gulf Station Cabernet Sauvignon, the fruit came from the owner’s Dixons Creek Estate and some other selected growers in the area. The wine has a rich red colour with purple shades. The aromas include lifted plums, blueberries, blackcurrants, cinnamon with some leafy and cedary hints. This medium bodied Cabernet’s palate boasts of rich fruit flavours with fine tannins and a great length. It is ready for immediate enjoyment and would also benefit from careful cellaring over a period of five to seven years. Try this wine with grilled meats and you are definitely in for a treat.
