Hero Notes:

We like the word ‘quintessence’ – it suggests an elusive fifth element beyond the established four of earth, air, fire and water, and has come to mean the embodiment of perfection. ‘Quintet’ may stop just short of that in winemaking reality and claim, but it is an ‘other-wordly’ wine, and surely manages to be greater than the some of its parts – namely Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. One of the original ‘dress circle’ wineries of the Yarra Valley, Mount Mary Quintet has always been an old school – almost European-styled – classic of Australian fine wine expression, and we think that this polished release is set to capture a new generation of followers.
