2017 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.
92/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
"Dark fruit, cedar and tobacco, floral perfume. It's medium-bodied, kind of light, but dense too, with savoury tobacco and cool blue and black fruit, something of a briary taste and feel, well packed tannin, and a fine long finish. Such sophistication at a very fair price. Recommended, especially for the claret fanciers among us."
95/100 James Halliday, Wine Companion 2020
"60% Cabernet, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. The color is deep and bright. The medium-bodied palate has very good balance between the fruit (and between the varieties), the oak and the tannins."
This years release comprises 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 9% 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.
