2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
The 2017 wine grape vintage in Tasmania showed excellent quality, although yields were slightly down from those in 2016. We are very pleased with the balanced acidity and very good flavour aroma profiles across all wine styles.
A classically styled cool climate Cabernet Merlot with many years in front of it. The nose is aromatic with blackberries, tobacco leaf and lifted cigar box notes. The medium bodied palate is powerful, dark berry and dark plums flavours mixing with cocoa and smoky oak influences. The excellent tannic structure and balanced acidity will ensure this wine develops in the cellar for 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.
