Moonambel Cabernet Sauvignon described as 'a marvel' in Robert Parker Wine Advocate

“… this is a bit of a marvel.”

We are overjoyed that Dalwhinnie has been featured as a stand-out producer of Victorian Cabernet Sauvignon by Erin Larkin in the Robert Parker Wine Advocate.

Erin, formerly of the Halliday Wine Companion, is a highly acclaimed Australian wine writer who is now contributing to the Robert Parker Wine Advocate. This is a universally renowned platform for wine education, news and tasting notes.

As part of Erin's new role, she will be reviewing wines from across Australia. She recently published an article on Cabernet Sauvignon in Victoria, which highlighted Dalwhinnie as a top producer in the region. Erin said:

“A mini but mighty expose on wines from this great state, many that I will be personally collecting for my own cellar.

“What I look for in great Cabernet is a sense of place, perhaps more so than in any other variety … Despite being a small report of just 27 wines, I’d hazard a guess that this is, on balance, one of the highest-scoring reports I have published so far. Among the 16 producers profiled here, a special mention must go to … Dalwhinnie in Moonambel … utterly sensational and speaks so eloquently of place and style.”

Congratulations to Chief Winemaker Julian Langworthy, Vineyard Supervisor Sam Bartlett and the whole Dalwhinnie team on this wonderful review.  

Dalwhinnie 2018 Moonambel Cabernet Sauvignon

"The 2018 Moonambel Cabernet Sauvignon is fleshy and bright in the glass, but the fruit—succulent as it is—is underpinned by a foundation of rock and minerals. The tannins are firm for sure; they frame the wine and assist the fruit in its journey across the palate. Polished yet with an open weave and complex in a black way, this is a bit of a marvel." 95 points – Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
