2013 Cabernet/Merlot

$29.00

Nose: The strong Blackcurrant aromas of the Cabernet Sauvignon are in excellent harmony with the chocolate and stone fruit from the Merlot.

Palate: Ripe dark berries complexed by fine grained powdery tannins. A light background vanilla derived from oak, completes the complex association of flavours.

Development: The development of these flavours over the 4 years bottle maturation given to this wine prior to release, is indicative of its strength of character.

Food: Perfectly suited to red meat dishes.

Vibrant and deep crimson in colour. The wine shows lifted aromas of black currants and blackberries which are subtly balanced with vanillin from the wine’s maturation in the finest French Oak barrels. The palate displays ripe dark berries complexed by fine grained powdery tannins. An elegant yet intense wine which can be enjoyed in its youth or cellared for seven to ten years to develop complexity. Excellent with red meat dishes.

A minimal addition of preservative (224) added.
