As many of our loyal mailing list members are aware, we don’t just make Pinot Noir – we also make a Cabernet Merlot – and of course other very enjoyable wines! You can produce excellent Cabernet Merlot wines in Tasmania, but they require the right site as well as meticulous work in the vineyard. We’ve just released our 2013 vintage, and consider it the best Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot blend we have made to date. Winestate Magazine agrees, twice rating it at 4.5 stars and top of its category– with the second result being awarded as part of the “Annual Cabernet Challenge 2017”.
It is a classically styled cool climate Cabernet Merlot, the nose expressive with blackberries, black cherries and lifted floral notes while the medium bodied palate has blackberry and dark plum flavors intertwined with cocoa, smoky oak and mineral nuances. The excellent tannin structure will ensure this wine develops in the cellar over the next several years – or you could simply drink it right now, paired with a rich meat dish such as Tasmanian Cape Grim beef fillets.
This is a wine well suited to winter dining! Interested? You can purchase it here – and if you are a Wine Club member, don’t forget to use your personal code for a discount on our regular price!
