For this Cabernet Merlot, fruit parcels are sourced primarily from vineyard sites on the warmer Yarra Valley flats, with a portion of the Merlot from the Upper Yarra. Individual vineyard parcels are fermented in a range of vessels to create a variety of flavour and tannin profiles. These parcels are then pressed off separately and racked into predominately French oak to develop further depth and complexity. Merlot acts like 'flesh on the bones', to round the palate of the wine, and add succulent berry fruit notes to the nose.

Grape Varieties: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Merlot

Maturation: Matured for sixteen months in oak barrels (97% French and 3% American) with 14% new French and 1.5% new American.

Colour: Med-dark garnet with crimson hues.

Nose: The nose is inviting, with brooding dark fruits, blackberries and brambly/briary fruits. The Upper Yarra Merlot gives hints of black olives and liquorice and the Cabernet provides the classic cassis and leaf core.

Palate: The wine is medium bodied, vibrant and balanced. A soft and fleshy palate displays cassis, plum, cedar and spice flavours. Restrained oak and soft tannins frame the wine nicely. A great luncheon style claret from an excellent vintage.

Region: South Eastern Australia
Alc: 13.5%
