Domaine Epis is comprised of winemaker Stuart Anderson and viticulturist Alec Epis. Their philosophy is to strive for the best quality fruit possible, adhering to low yields. With their combined experience they know when the grapes are ripe enough. As a result, their wines are consistently highly critically acclaimed. Their 2002 Reserve is made from grapes sourced from the Kyneton vineyard in the Macedon Ranges. With clay and basalt-based soils, these undoubtedly contribute to the complexity of flavours and aromas.
The 2002 Reserve is a classic mature Cabernet akin to those of Bordeaux. There are red berries and black currant with dusty leafy notes and cigar box characters on the nose. The palate is well developed with cassis, red fruits and capsicum, highlighting the cool climate of the region. The mouthfeel is soft and rounded with fine tannins, well-integrated oak and balanced acidity.
Pair as you would a fine Bordeaux with grilled beef or lamb or juicy Portabello mushrooms.
