2011 Cab Merlot

2011 Cabernet-Merlot

Dark red in color with intense notes black currants, toasted oak, dried fig and graphite. Very nice texture and richness on the palate, intense flavours and a long finish.


Each grape variety in the final blend was kept separate in the winery. Each variety underwent a short cold soak, then a long maceration of 4-6 weeks on skins. Aged in a combination of French and American oak, the barrels for the final blend were selected after eighteen months in barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
