Wine tasting notes
This soft, easy drinking wine is a blend of three classic varieties. The grape varietal parcels were harvested as they ripened and fermented on their skins separately.
The Old Coach Road Merlot Malbec Cabernet Franc has juicy berry fruit characters on the nose. Palate has a good entry and gentle fusion of fruit and smooth oak tannins. Warm spicy flavours linger on the palate, leaving a long lasting finish on the wine.
Fermentation occurred over a three week period with punch downs occurring twice daily to help build up the core structure from which this wine would evolve. The wines were then aged separately in French oak barriques to impart spicy oak flavours.
