Mount Mary has hit a purple patch with their Quintet over the past few vintages, and their Royal Purpleness continues in 2017. Such perfume. It’s head spinningly fragrant. I’m thinking violet, cigar box, nougat, spicy biscuits, mint, chocolate and sweet wet earth, along with a core of intense raspberry, cherry and blackcurrant. It’s medium bodied, lithe but dense, rich cherry chocolate sprinkled with baking spices, crisp cranberry acidity, high pixel tannin, sweetness of fruit with a savoury ferrous edge. The finish is supremely long, all graphite and perfume, crisp definition and aniseed trailing in the aftertaste. Fine and rare. 97 points – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

This is epic. Just has that undeniable feel of pedigree. Svelte and firm, succulent and so detailed. Dark fruits, spice, earth, herbal notes. Incredible tannin. Trails long on fennel and graphite character. So epic. 2020-2040+. 97 points – Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

This hits the upper register of vintage quality for this wine, showing a very fresh, youthful and attractive array of redder fruit with gentle, cedary-oak overtones and a light, earthy edge. The palate is so silky and elegant; the fine, ribbon-like tannins hold long and true. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Best from 2025. 96 points – Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com

45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec, all vinified separately and matured in French oak (35% new) in various larger vessels and vats. The bouquet is gently cedary/savoury, and the palate adds herbal/green olive notes to the finish. It’s still to find its feet (all five of them). 95 points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion
