2019 Richardson Cabernet Sauvignon
The Blue Pyrenees Richardson series of wines are only produced in highly regarded vintages & are dedicated to the late Colin Richardson, a larger than life character who lived, breathed & loved wine. As fine wine director of Blue Pyrenees, national wine judge & educator he never stopped espousing the virtue of wine, to anyone who cared to listen.

Distinctly Cabernet Sauvignon with blackberry fruit, cassis, oyster shell and sweet oak
The blackcurrant, blackberry and green olive are fruit derived and they have been crafted into a wine of great power by full extraction of colour, flavours, and tannins from the grapes. The integration of all these flavours in French oak also adds to the structure and tannin, creating a long savoury aftertaste.
The Richardson Series of wines are produced only in great vintages, from the most characterful batches of grapes, identified by the Blue Pyrenees winemakers, as having the potential to make an iconic red wine, as a tribute to the late Colin Richardson, himself a larger-than-life character.
These wines are vinified and matured separately before selection as
suitable for “Richardson” quality.
The wine was matured in new and 2-year-old French oak barrels resulting
in complexity, smoothness and integration of the oak flavour components
into the wine.
