Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
This is our ultimate blend and is only made if the vintage is good enough. Made to showcase the “King of Grapes”, Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is crafted from grapes grown in the best parts of our vineyard and with the lowest number of grapes per vine. 2016 was a cooler spring but a scorcher in February was the perfect mid-summer heat that Cabernet needs. Bold, fragrant aromatics of sweet blackcurrants, crushed dried herbs layered with tobacco, cedar and cinnamon bark. On the palate there is sustained flavours of cassis, dark berries, spice, cocoa and graphite. Well knit, lacy tannins dance on the finish that will soften further with careful cellaring. Decant before serving.
