Tasting Notes

This Cabernet Merlot shows well defined varietal characters of ripe dark cherries, plum and black currant mixed with hints of toasty oak. The palate is soft yet full-bodied with ripe flavours of plum, black currant and berry and great length of flavour.

In the vineyard a warm, dry summer provided a clean and disease free vintage with great ripening conditions across all regions. No significant rain fell during the ripening period and despite some hot days, extended heat waves through the growing season has given all the 2019 reds and abundance of ripe fruit characters.

 

*Vintage may vary. Every effort is made to ensure the current vintage is displayed, however variations can occur.
