What a smooth and unique expression of the famous blend, our Cabernet Merlot will suit both casual and formal dining and for sure all the Margaret River Cab Merlot lovers!

"Currants, black olives, bay and milk chocolate flavours mount a pretty good argument in this wine's favour. It's generally well shaped and while the finish isn't long, particularly on opening, it responds well to a quick double-decant. Value." Campbell Mattinson - Halliday 

90 points (SILVER) - Halliday Wine Companion 2020

Colour: Crimson/Red

Bouquet: Redcurrant, earth and cedar.

Palate: The palate is rich and powerful showing generous mulberry and dark chocolate flavours. A soft and supple backbone of tannin gives this Cabernet a long and precise evolution through the palate.

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 98% - Merlot 2%

Region: Margaret River

Sub-Region: Wilyabrup

Cellaring Potential: This wine is drinking beautifully now and will reward with careful cellaring over the next 5-7 years.

Slow-braised beef or venison -
especially when cooked in red wine.

Machine Harvested fruit is delivered to the winery where it is crushed and destemmed to a fermenter. Selected yeast is added and a controlled fermentation is conducted over a 14 day period.

During fermentation the wine is pumped over the skins twice a day to facilitate colour and tannin extraction.

A period of post fermentation maceration on-skins has been employed for this batch to further ameliorate and soften the tannin profile of this wine.

Following fermentation and extended skin contact the wine is matured in a mix of oak barrels and tank. After maturation the wine is assembled before a light egg fining and filtration prior to bottling.

Alc%: 14.5%
