Bobar 2023 G-Blend


An unfiltered light red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Pinot Noir. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot are interplanted (field blend) and are harvested together, the Pinot Noir grows beside these vines and is harvested separately. An expansive east facing slope with silt loam soils in Yarra Glen on the Christmas Hills escarpment.

Perfumed, fresh, flavoursome, delicious! An aroma that evokes fistfuls of crushed berries and a mid-summer garden in all its sun-kissed glory. The palate is soft, full and bright.

The Vintage

The 2022/23 season was a tale of two halves. Unrelenting wet conditions in spring made vineyard work difficult and disease pressure high. From December, that hard work was repaid in full when we were granted 3 months of lovely mild and dry conditions for the vines to finish their season’s work with relative ease, the grapes ripening slowly and steadily. Some yields were drastically reduced due to the wet spring but the wine quality is exceptional. The 2023 wines have depth, concentration and purity and we’re excited to release this little preview of what’s to come.


Hand harvested, a small portion crushed with the remaining whole-bunches placed on top for a 7 day maceration. Pressed to an equal mix of small oak casks and stainless steel tanks for the completion of ferments and maturation over winter. The G-blend was blended in late winter and bottled 4 weeks later without fining or filtration.
