TASTING NOTES

Cabernet Merlot is a classic blend of two great varieties. The power and tannin from Cabernet Sauvignon overlaid with juicy red fruit characters from Merlot. This wine delivers both complexity and drinkability in one harmonious blend.

SEASON

Cool weather and regular rain up until Christmas made a slow start to the season, setting up good ground moisture and vine health coming into summer. An extended dry, mild patch over January and February contributed to create excellent depth of flavour balanced with lively acidity.

WINEMAKING

This wine is from select vineyards in Margaret River, including Brindle Vineyard in Wilyabrup in the centre of the region. Bunches were destemmed and fermented in open fermenters with hand plunging and pump overs. The wine was matured in a mix of older oak and stainless steel tanks. All aged for 15 months.

THE REGION

THE REGION

Margaret River

Margaret River is one of the most reliable wine growing regions in Australia and its monotonously glowing vintage reports can bring tears to the eyes of long-suffering vignerons in regions less favoured by Mother Nature.

Surrounded by ocean on three sides, the sea breeze brings cool air to moderate the long summer days.
