Yarra’s best kept secret is the quality of its cabernet. With depth and structure, this cabernet boasts big fruit and smooth tannins. The 2016 vintage was named the best cabernet in the region at the 2017 Yarra Valley Wine Show.

Pair with a steak or slow-braised beef; venison can be great too, especially when cooked with the wine. If you’re pairing cheese, go with a rich, vintage cheddar to match the intensity.
