Cabernet Merlot 2017

Cabernet Merlot 2017

A bouquet of blackberry, chocolate and a slight savoury undertone. More full-bodied this year with the longer than usual ‘hang time’. Blackberry, cassis and blueberry to the fore, with fresh, evident acidity, reflecting the cooler conditions of 2017. Attractive gravelly tannins to finish.

Reviews and Awards

"Youthful, bright crimson-purple hue; the essence of Margaret River Cabernet Merlot, wines that cause winemakers from the Eastern states to throw up their hands in surrender.  It 's no more than medium-bodied, but it is packed with silky flavours of cassis, plum and tapenade.  Can't be faulted."

James Halliday, 95/100 pts - GOLD - 1st June 2019
