Description

This classic blend of Cabernet and Merlot delivers an exotic aroma of ripe raspberry, dark plum and spice. Whilst the palate enhances the complexity with leafy berry and earthy notes with a glossy, juicy finish.

Winemaking Notes

For this special release we sourced certified organic Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grown on the cool hillside in Orange NSW. The bright, floral, aromatic nature of the Merlot was wonderfully suited to the rich, cool velvet nature of the Cabernet. The wines were fermented separately in open oak fermenters, pressed gently, then blended together after malolactic fermentation was complete.

"From a certified organic hillside vineyard in Orange. Sappy. Herbal. A meld of bitter chocolate and spearmint, interplayed with creme de cassis, terracotta and dried sage. A flavourful mouthful, given focus by a firm weave of grape tannin spooled over a spindle of smart oak. Medium, savoury and good drinking. Akin to a Chinon from a very ripe vintage."
