Blue Pyrenees were established through a no expense spared approach, by two of the wine world's most revered, accomplished and resourced estates. A superior standard of viticulture and exacting vinification techniques were the priority, they remain at the very core of the Blue Pyrenees raison d'être. An assemblage of exclusively estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Malbec and Shiraz, artfully crafted into a seamless style of vigorously perfumed fruit, finely polished tannins and fragrant, flattering oak.

The Richardson Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon wines are produced from the most exceptional parcels of fruit as identified by the Blue Pyrenees team; the same philosophy established in the 1990’s to create exceptional wine as a tribute to the late Colin Richardson.

A wine that expects time in the cellar, completely in keeping with the philosophy of its namesake, who extolled the virtues of ageing Victorian reds. The familiar scent of the Aussie bush, bay leaf and sage joins dark forest berries, earth and fine coffee ground, vanillan oak aromas. The firm, tannin-sure palate is enhanced by a lilting herbal savouriness. Closure: Diam; Drink to: 2032; Price: $160.00; Date Tasted: February 2021; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 95 Points; Jeni Port; James Halliday Wine Companion

Deep red/purple colour, with a bouquet of lifted peppermint and red fruits, the palate elegant as well as full-bodied, and not the blockbuster we might expect. The fruit does the talking and it's elegant and effortless on the tongue, finishing with persistent drying but fine-grained tannins. Long finish. A fine wine indeed, well worth cellar space. 833 dozen produced. Date Tasted: April 2021; Drink: 2022 to 2037; Price: $150.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 94 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
