Cabernet Sauvignon – Merlot

$26.00
The conditions in Margaret River are quite consistent looking at the coastal influence, temperature, and overall Mediterranean climate. Weather in the first week of February was mild and rain fell, providing welcome relief for the vineyards and was a great timing for the later ripening Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Sauvignon, the classic grape varietal for Margaret River better known as the King of the reds, this vintage blended with Merlot, Nebbiolo and Malbec.

Pale ruby in the glass. This is all about fragrance and perfume. Notes of red cherry and mulberry meet savoury green capsicum, black olives, and camphor. It tastes of dark fruit character surrounded by eucalypt, oak, and a dried sage lift. A clean definition of the acidity and with the allowance to breathe textural tannins unfold within the glass. Pairs best with meat dishes like steak, venison stew, roast beef, and roasted lamb.
