2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

McLaren Vale SA, Margaret River WA

Excellent colour with medium to deep density and purple hues. Lovely sweet cedar notes from the Cabernet and background vanillin and nutmeg from the French oak. Sweet fruit up front on the palate with Turkish Delight and dark pastille flavours. Fine tannins carry to finish. An immensely enjoyable wine that will reward cellaring.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Machine harvested, crushed and chilled to tanker in McLaren Vale. A combination of Open and Vinomatic fermentation in the Hunter. Minimal extraction, as soft tannins are required. Oak maturation in 100% French barriques for 18 months.
Winemaker Comments
The 37th release of this wine come from the warm and dry 2019 vintage. A dry winter followed by a hot spring/summer resulted in generally lower than average yields and earlier ripening. Wonderful ripe fruit characters and rich in flavour with classic Cabernet aromatics. The blend for this wine is 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot.
Food Pairing
Roast meats and strong cheese.
Drink
Drinking well now, a wine that will improve with further bottle age.
