Counterpoint Vineyards

Pyrenees, Victoria

A tiny vineyard of only two hectares in the heart of the glorious Pyrenees at Moonambel, Counterpoint Vineyards makes some lovely wines at very affordable prices.

We were most interested in stocking this wine, because it was something that was a little different from the norm: high quality red blends from Victoria. Thus far, we have not been disappointed. We stock both their 2002 Cabernet Merlot and their 2001 Frenchmans, with the latter being a delicious blend of Cab Sav, Cab Franc and Merlot, and is not at all dissimilar to the classic 'Bordeaux' blend. Both have cork closures, and, combined with their age in the bottle, are maturing very well.

Only a total production of 400 cases a year!
