2008 Cabernet Sauvignon – Merlot

One of our winemaker’s favourite blends, a classic from Bordeaux.
The 2008 vintage was warm and long with a dry autumn essential for red grape varieties to ripen in our particular microclimate.

The bouquet is dominated by intense blackberry and red currant which together give this wine great depth. The berry fruits extend onto the palate where they exhibit concentrated blackberry supported by subtle anise flavours that linger in the mouth. These flavours are also supported by fine French oak and very fine tannins. The result; a delightfully elegant, cool climate wine. If you wish to drink now be sure to decant.
