2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

McLaren Vale, SA

Lifted cassis, cedar wood cabernet aromas and plenty of ripe red fruits. Noticeable oak on the nose, medium to dense colour, with youthful tints. Ripe, rich plum notes from the Merlot (40%) combined with dusty tannins from the fruit and oak, make this a well-balanced wine with an impressive palate and plenty of power.

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. The Margaret River component was sent to the Hunter Valley post fermentation.
Winemaker Comments
It is with great excitement to be able to bring Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon back to this blend and it represents 32%. The fruit is from the North end of the Margaret River wine region around the Yallingup area. The 2014 vintage continued a run of classic vintages in the West. The McLaren Vale vintage was very good with the only hiccup being a heat spike in January and another in February. The blend for this wine is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 30% Merlot.
Food Pairing
Roast meats and strong cheese.
Drink
Drinking well now, a wine that will improve with further bottle age.
