Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Deep colour and density with youthful purple hues evident. Red plummy fruit characters with tobacco Cabernet Sauvignon flavours in the background. Soft, ripe tannins give the wine great texture and length of flavour.
Vinification
Fermentation was in a combination of static fermenters and large format vinimatics. The oak maturation was in new (20%), one and two year old French barriques.
Winemaker Comments
‘If your wine is as scarce as gold you must be paid in gold’. These were the words of Melbourne restaurateur Herman Schneider that accompanied three gold half-sovereigns, payment for five cases of 1975 Brokenwood Cabernet Sauvignon. The proprietor of Two Faces, had previously ordered wine from the 1973 and 1974 vintages, but such was the demand none could be supplied. Not so the 1975, with the wine duly delivered late that year. A typical blend of these two famous Bordeaux varieties, being 78% Cabernet and 22% Merlot. Beechworth is an ultra-premium region in North East Victoria. The cool 2011 vintage produced classic cabernet cassis and blackcurrant flavours. The merlot plump and generous with a hint of leafiness.
Food Pairing
Roast meats and cheese strong cheese.
Drink
Drinking well now, however will improve with further bottle age.
