Gemtree Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Mclaren Vale Tatty Road 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet creates the platform and base, petit verdot gives aromatics structure and tannin, merlot the juiciness and cabernet franc is the funk… A Bordeaux blend with a difference!

Very dark in the glass, nearly opaque. Nose of dusty, chalky cocoa powder and stewed fruit. Leaning heavily to black fruits, plums, etc. Some black olive and savory herbs. Minty flavor quality over dark red and black fruits. A bit stewy and lead by plum. Fruit skins more so than flesh on the palate. Also tasting cocoa powder and roasted herbs. Drink now. 86 pts. 2/24/13

Gemtree Tatty Road 2006: In diesem Tatty Road sind vier Rebsorten sehr gut vereint. In Anlehnung an einen Bordeaux blend bekommen Sie einen sehr schönen Wein. Im Glas leuchtet er rubinrot. In der Nase ist er etwas zurückhaltend, aber nach einer Stunde Belüftung zeigen sich deutliche Aromen von süßen Kirschen und Kräutern und leicht subtilen Holznoten.Am Gaumen ist er wunderbar ausbalanciert. Die einzelnen Rebsorten bilden eine perfekte harmonische Einheit. Die Aromen schmecken leicht nach süßer Kirsche und Kräuterbonbon und einem dezenten Holzton. Der Wein hat grobkörnige Tannine und die Säure ist gut integriert. Der Körper ist nicht zu kräftig. Der Abgang ist sehr langanhaltend.Passt sehr gut zu Rinderbraten mit brauner Sauce und Kartoffelgratin.  Weingut: Gemtree VineyardsRegion: McLaren ValeRebsorte: Cabernet Sauvignon 52%, Petit Verdot 30%, Cabernet Franc 13%, Merlot 5%Inhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14 Vol.%Restsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab Jahrgang Fassreife: in Barriques gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Rotwein > Australien > McLaren Vale
