The blending of Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot is one of the world’s classic varietal combinations. Perhaps most famously embraced in the Medoc region of Bordeaux it is also common in Australia, California and other New World wine producing countries. The classic blackcurrant flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon, with its telltale bramble leaf aromas, contract perfectly with the rich, plummy fruit of Merlot to form a delicious wine of distinction and style. This wine combines 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot, giving clear, identifiable varietal characters from both sides of the blend.
Colour: Dark plum with vibrant purple hues.
Nose: The nose is fruit driven and lifted with aromas spanning blackcurrant and plum through to red cherry and spice.
Palate: The Cabernet Sauvignon lends rich blackcurrant fruit, savoury complexity and structure, whilst the Merlot provides a ripe mid-palate and a velvety, plummy softness to the finish.
