2016 Cabernet Merlot
Aromatically, the wine displays fruit cake and spice - like floral notes of Petit Verdot. On the palate, the structure and tannin of Cabernet Sauvignon compliments the mid palate sweetness and fleshy mouthfeel of the Merlot grape.
91/100 Ray Jordan, The West Australian
"The basic blend also gets a lift from a small amount of floral aromatic petit verdot. Classy wine offering excellent value for money. Fine chalky tannins, fine grained oak and powerful medium to full-bodied fruit intensity. Textured and well weighted. Excellent little wine."
This years release comprises 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. In making this wine, the emphasis is on minimal tannin extraction to produce a style rich in flavour with a softness to allow the wine to be enjoyed upon release. Winemaking techniques such as cooler fermentation temperatures and earlier removal of the wine from its skins and seeds have facilitated this, whilst avoiding the extraction of bitter, green tannins. This wine would beautifully partner roast lamb, but would also compliment most red meats.
