This wine blends ripe, luscious grapes from South Australia and more restrained fruit from Victoria. Both areas are known for their abundance of sunshine leading to maximum richness and flavour.
Wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes is known for its intense red colour and strong tannins. With the addition of a small parcel of Merlot the winemaker has created a wine that gives a more rounded mouth feel with added softness to the palate.
The 90% Cabernet and 10% Merlot shows the benefit of blending to produce the best of both varieties. Showing attributes of both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot this wine displays opulent fruit and a vibrant, velvety texture leading to a pleasing integrated finish. Exposure to wood before bottling has led to some complexity without altering the fruit driven nature of this wine.
