AUD$22. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 6% Malbec. Fruit from individual batches were crushed separately into stainless steel fermentation vessels and underwent different extraction processes. The Cabernet fruit underwent a 5-day warm maceration period to maximise tannin and colour extraction. The Merlot fruit underwent cold maceration prior to fermentation, and pressed off skins early to avoid excessive tannin extraction. The wine was matured in French oak barrels for 12 months, 8% new. Clear, intense ruby-purple colour. Youthful lifted aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries and red plums. Whiff of bay leaf. A medium+ bodied wine, high acidity, 13.5% alc. The young, fine-grained tannins give an initial dusty chocolate powder-like texture, and work well to give this wine an accessible structure at this young age. Rich flavours of blackberries, raspberry candy and plum. Long finish, with the fruit lingering at the back recesses of your mouth. Drink now to 2018.
