One of Australia's most iconic wines and one of only 5 cabernets included in Langton's 'Exceptional' top tier. Founded in 1971 by John Middleton and located in the Yarra Valley, Mount Mary has consistently received praise. Quintet is based on the five classic Bordeaux varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
"Mount Mary is one of the great wineries of Australia, and has been for decades, but I’m pretty certain in the view that it is in the form of its life. The Mount Mary wines have never looked better." Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
Awarded Winery of the Year in 2018 by James Halliday at which time he noted "…its star shines brighter than that of any of the 174 wineries in the Yarra Valley."
"The 2015 vintage in the Yarra Valley was, quite simply, great, and Sam (Middleton) took full advantage of it, making exquisite wines." James Halliday.
"Just because the Mount Mary wines are famed for their purity, elegance and balance doesn't mean that they eschew power and layered complexity. Quintet (the five Bordeaux varieties) is the king of the portfolio, the wine that was closest to founder Dr John Middleton's irascible heart. The vintage may have been especially great for Pinot, but the rainbow of cassis, redcurrant, dried herb and bramble flavours are absolutely exemplary." 98 points, James Halliday, The Australian - upgraded from 97.
