Studley Park Vineyard Cabernet 2001

Studley Park Vineyard is located only 4 kilometres from the CBD of Melbourne.  And although only planted in 1994, Studley Park's vineyard is a reminder of the largely forgotten viticultural history and potential of some of Melbourne's suburbs. And as if to rub it in, their 2001 cabernet is in fact very good, achieving a very satisfactory elegance and balance.  Plums, graphite and stones by way of fragrance.  Length and elegance on the palate, and the sort of wine I like to drink.  86 points (7.1/10)

Abv: 13.2%
Price: $25 (current vintage)
