Cabernet Merlot 2013

SKU wn0004
This wine is a classic Margaret River blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Merlot. It has a rich bouquet combining blackcurrant and capsicum aromas. The palate is medium to full bodied with cassis and blueberry flavours and cedary oak. The dusty tannins and finely balanced acidity not only give the wine great structure and palate length but also provide a cellaring potential of 8 to 10 years.

Winemaker's Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes used in this blend were picked on the estate on March 13 and February 25, 2013 at a Baumé of 13.9° and 13.1° respectively. They were both plunged in open fermenters for several days, followed by several more in stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. French oak barriques were used for their maturation over a nineteen month period and then, after blending 71%:29%, 597 cases were bottled in December 2014.
