Mount Mary Quintet

2017 Mount Mary Quintet

Yarra Valley, Victoria


Winemaker: Sam Middleton
Vineyard/Year: Mount Mary / 2017

One of the great small wineries of Australia. The Quintet blend commands mythical status among collectors globally.

The Mount Mary vineyard is planted to Cabernet sauvignon (50%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet franc (15%), Malbec (5%) and Petit verdot (5%). The percentage of each variety that goes into the final blend changes with the season as factors such as fruitfulness and fruit set vary. These varieties ferment on skins for around 12-14 days. This is followed by 22 months of barrel maturation, with 25% of the blend in large format oak (1500L or larger), and 30% in new barriques (225L). The remaining wine is matured in 2-5 year old barriques.
