2017 Cabernet Merlot
Goes well with lamb
This medium weight Cabernet Merlot is a great match for lamb and the softer tannins in this wine marry perfectly with the delicate nature of Tasmanian grass fed spring lamb.
The Cabernet and Merlot for this wine were picked at optimal ripeness to ensure a fruit driven style of wine. The fruit was fermented in small batches which were hand plunged to ensure gentle extraction of fruit flavours and tannins. The wine was pressed immediately upon the completion of alcoholic fermentation to ensure that the fleshy fruit characters of the wine were preserved. Following fermentation and pressing this wine was matured in tank with a small oak addition to ensure the preservation of the fruit characters.
This wine is a medium weight, fruit driven style of wine. With only a small oak addition, the true grape flavours are revealed. Blackberry and raspberry flavours dominate this wine, whilst the palate is fleshy and smooth.
