2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

McLaren Vale, SA

Deep colour with bright purple hues. Lifted Christmas cake aromas and while the vanillin oak is obvious, has had one year in bottle on release. The oak is matched by strong fruit, a rich mouth feel and the warmth that McLaren Vale is renowned for. Tobacco Cabernet Sauvignon flavours and ripe dusty tannins make for a very pleasing and very drinkable red.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Machine harvested, crushed and chilled to tanker in McLaren Vale. Vinomatic fermentation in the Hunter. Not overly rotated, as soft tannins are required. Oak maturation in French and American barriques.
Winemaker Comments
The blend for this wine is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 30% Merlot. The 2013 McLaren Vale vintage was fairly quick with dry conditions and an early harvest with yields down 10 to 30%. Being dry there was no disease pressure and overall rated as a very high quality vintage by local winemakers.
Food Pairing
Roast meats and strong cheese.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
