||Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Colour: Good depth of colour with vibrant purple hues.
Nose: Layered and complex. A compote of fragrant fruit florals typical of Margaret River. Hints of cigar-box and melted dark chocolate.
Palate: Classic Cabernet cassis sits alongside smokey spicy oak. The palate has depth of flavour - roasted cocoa beans and freshly picked blackcurrants dominate the mid palate.
Unlike vineyard regions in South Australia and the Eastern Seaboard, Margaret River experienced a higher level of rainfall through winter and spring than in previous years. This was balanced by a warmer, drier summer than during the average harvest period. While yields were down overall, the quality achieved was very good.
This wine was matured for 15 months in 100% French oak barrels - 40% new with the remainder in seasoned barrels.
