Cabernet Shiraz Merlot 2006
Generous blackcurrant and red berry fruit flavours, dark chocolate and subtle spice carry through to a smooth lingering finish.Download Full Winemaker Note
Vibrant red with a youthful purple hue on release.
The wine has a lifted complex nose with aromas of blackcurrant, plum and mint. More savoury characters of dried herbs, spice, cedar and chocolate add to the wines charm.
The wine has luscious berry characters throughout the palate while spice, liquorice and dark chocolate characters add complexity. The wine, whilst rich in texture, has a soft, round mid palate with long elegant tannins and a velvety, persistent finish.
The wine can be enjoyed now but will benefit from careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2014.
