Cabernet Merlot is the “in thing” of Australian red wine at the moment, and this hand crafted, full-bodied example delivers the firm structure and tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon, while retaining the suppleness and smooth drinking of the Merlot varietal. Earthy, rich and with solid oak integration – the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot used in this blend both spent over 5 years maturing in a combination of French and American Oak before blending and bottling – this is a different, more robust take on the Cab Merlot genre that will appeal to those who like a fuller bodied, easy drinking experience. This classy Cabernet Merlot is a great match with pizza or a chilli con carne, and is ready to be enjoyed now, but will age well up until 2019. Limited stocks remaining
