2018 Wantirna Amelia Cabernet Merlot

Wantirna Estate is a high quality wine producer practically right in the city of Melbourne. The vines were planted in 1963 and this date marks the beginning of a golden era in the Yarra Valley, as a few other wineries also opened their doors and started making world class wines. Wantirna Estate was founded by Reg Egan and Bertina Curcio. Today, the estate is run by their daughters and possibly soon by their grand-daughters Amelia, Lily, Hannah and Isabella. Have you seen these names on their labels? 

  

Why do we like it?

We truly enjoy these wines because, a few years ago, we had the opportunity to pour back vintages, dating somewhere in the 1990s, "by the glass" which gave us a great opportunity to experience them. They were intense, with ripe black-fruit aromas, a strong sense of graphite, and grilled capsicum.  With a touch of smokiness to them and a long finish. It was difficult not to compare them to a very good Bordeaux. For this bottle, the best suggestion would be to buy a few and let them age. As all good wine should, it will age gracefully.
