Another challenging year and more great wines. The vintage itself for Dalwhinnie was outstanding, but with only average yields. Plenty of sunshine and minimal rain, but the volumes were down a little on the previous year. Moonambel Vineyard, in the parched districts of western Victoria, is strictly unirrigated, the emphasis here continues to lean strongly towards organic viticulture. The site has been re developed utilizing to a vertical shoot positioned canopy. Introduction of new and improved clones remains part of the ongoing viticultural program, enhancing and evolving the complexity of Dalwhinnie wines.
Vintage 2004 represents twenty consecutive years of fine tuning within the vineyard and throughout the entire winemaking operation. Moonambel 2004 offers a palate and nose of exceptional depth and finesse, rating amongst the finest editions of Cabernet that Dalwhinnie have ever made. The style is fleshier than previous releases, bearing more fruit and tannin, endowed with great freshness and magnificent structure.
An enigmatic deep dark purple/ blue colour. Bouquet shows rich dark red fruits and bramble, menthol, mint and perfumes of violet. The palate holds an intense flavour profile, tight and restrained, well structured with juicy black fruits over finely grained cedary tannins. Lively and fully dimensional fruit flavours, very broad with nuances of blackberry, liquorice flavoured tnnins and ripe tarry fruit. The mouthfeel is finely textured with sweet cassis and cedary tones which run tightly across the palate.

Out in Victoria's west country, planted to rocky scenic uplands, parched vines struggle to survive, yielding tiny little berries of the most concentrated and intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon. Ballarat architect Ewan Jones established Dalwhinnie in 1976, his eldest son David has managed it since 1983. It's the kind of family devotion to winemaking that one finds in the great estates of the world. At 595 metres above sea level, Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest crags, this unique bowl of vines is a world unto itself, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills.
Dalwhinnie vineyard was planted to a unique topographical amphitheatre which precipitates its own meso climate. The site is totally frost free and allows fruit to reach complete physiological ripeness in nine out of ten years. This rare confluence of temperate climes, cooler altitudes and parched Pyrenees soils, sublimate into one of Australia's most enduring and distinctive styles of Cabernet Sauvignon. A stunning wine, the overall impression is of ripe pure black fruits, layered with rich dark chocolate and seasoned by notes of violet and camphor.
Dark cherry red. Fine elegant cedar cigar box perfume with lifted dark berry fruits, clean and varietally articulate. Very fresh. Very tight and highly strung, displaying fruit, oak and acid in fine balance. The harmony of these three elements is impeccable for such a young wine. Shows all the character and style of a grand cru left bank bordeaux. The super league of Victorian Cabernet Sauvignon.
