The limited release JWDM CABERNET is a wine never bottled before at Mount Mary. It is made from a selection of our oldest Cabernet sauvignon vines, planted in 1971 by founder Dr John William Dyer Middleton.
It is a one-off limited edition wine produced from the 2015 Vintage. With only 649 bottles produced, this is an extremely limited release. Each bottle is individually numbered from 1 to 649.
2015 was quite simply a truly outstanding Yarra Valley vintage. Exceptional ripening conditions throughout the growing season contributed to vibrant, expressive, complex and perfectly balanced, long lived wines. The sheer quality of fruit from our oldest and most established vines makes this a very special wine, providing an extremely unique representation of our terroir from a highly acclaimed vintage. 2015 also commemorates 40 years of winemaking at Mount Mary, a significant milestone in the history of our treasured site.
NOTES FROM SAM MIDDLETON, HEAD WINEMAKER
John’s initial and firm belief in 1971 was that Cabernet sauvignon was the Yarra valley’s premium grape variety. This sentiment influenced his vision for Mount Mary and in-turn drove our decision in making this one-off wine. There is an incredible latent power, elegance and balance to this wine that is testament to a 45+ year old vineyard. The palate shows impressive depth and persistence, with a fruit profile that is darker and more brooding than our flagship Quintet blend typically shows. The gravelly tannic spine is another example of just how great Yarra Cabernet can be. We do not wish to indicate a drinking window but expect the generations of Middleton’s to follow at Mount Mary will enjoy this wine for many decades to come.
