Bobar Cabaret Blend, 2018, Yarra Valley, Australia
Sold Out (inc VAT)
On paper, Bobar's Cabaret is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, but there is a handful of Pinot Noir somewhere in this field blend. Tom worked at this property during the vineyard planting back in 1999, so it was serendipitous for Tom and Sally to come back to this plot. The result? A mash-up blend that expresses the picturesque Yarra Valley's red wine heritage. As Sally says, "a most unlikely story, just a cock-up by the vineyard crew but one that has worked out well for us."
Making wines simply and sustainably is at the heart of this quaint, and equally rather bold vineyard, hidden away in the Yarra Valley. Tom and Sally Belford are pioneers of the natural wine movement, and with the only exception of a little gas at bottling, nothing is added to their wine. Using fruit from their own vineyards and selected sites from across the valley, their gentle, lo-fi wines have developed quite a cult following! Like we love to express the eccentricity and brilliance of our winemakers, Bobar wines express the place where they grow their grapes, and the sheer pleasure they take in their craft.
