"The grapes for this beautifully crafted blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc were selected from superior Gimblett Gravels vineyards ideally suited to these Bordeaux-red varietals...55% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc...This fine Merlot Cabernet blend has lovely blackcurrant and boysenberry aromas and flavours underlined with toasty oak. Complemented with subtle liquorice, leather and spice complexity, this full bodied wine has a long lingering finish. It is deliciously approachable and will pair perfectly with your favourite red meat or pasta dish."
When we featured this wine in March it was a Huge Hit. We sold lots of it and when you taste it you'll see why. Charming, balanced and brilliant.
