2011 Cabernet Merlot

The first of two warm, dry vintages, the 2011 Cabernet Merlot displays all the hallmarks of this award winning blend. Hand-picked Cabernet and Merlot were given varied contact on skins throughout fermentation. Combined, this highlights aromas of cassis with succulent, juicy red fruit flavours on the mid-palate, finishing with long fine tannins. This elegant wine has been matured in the finest French oak barriques for 18 months. Enjoy drinking now, or cellar to 10 years.

“Clear crimson; fragrant red berry fruits on the bouquet have a distinct overlay of mulberry, the palate picking up all of the calling cards of the bouquet, setting them in a medium -to full-bodied framework, juicy notes offset by quality French oak and fine tannins.Has a great future.”

Here is the details for the 2010 Cabernet Merlot

The 2010 vintage started warm and finished cool, creating wonderful depths of flavour from our Estate’s hand picked fruit. A fresh nose of mulberry and cranberry is wrapped in a hint of vanilla and cedar from the well integrated French oak. The palate is crafted from finely grained but chalky tannins, showing generous length and elegance. Cellar up to seven years.
