Beautiful Cabernet aromas of blackcurrant intermingle with wood notes and cedar. Supremely drinkable at a refreshing 13% alcohol. Lots of class and quality making. This is seriously good. Distant Noises is Tom's (Yabby Lake Winemaker) own winemaking project - his first personal project to date - and it has got us rubbing our thighs and slavvering like feral beasts in anticipation. The first wine of this project is a cool-climate cabernet sauvignon. The fruit is sourced from Yarra, and the winemaking is as sensitive, precise, assured as befits Tom's name.
The real beauty of Distant Noises though? It's the price! Tom has set himself the challenge of making premium Mornington Peninsula wine at a price that you rarely see for wines from this region. Why, in this venal old world, would he do that? Because he wants to. He's achieved pretty much everything else there is to achieve in wine. He's reached the summit several times over. Distant Noise is his chance to do that rare thing of making a cracking wine that is accessible to many, that gives as many people as possible the pleasure of the wines he makes.
