Wine tasting notes
"Very dark, deep, black-red colour, youthful in appearance. This has an elegant, well-concentrated nose with integrated dark-red plum, red currant and blackcurrant fruit aromas, the oaking subtle and harmonious. Medium-bodied, the palate exudes balance, integration and elegance with fine, sweetly ripe flavours of blackcurrants and redcurrants and soft red plum elements. The fruit follows a very fine-grained tannin line, and the palate has freshness from the acidity. The wine carries with vibrancy to a long, lingering blackcurranty finish. This is an elegant and balanced Merlot blend, 5-6 years ahead. A blend of 52% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the fruit from the Bridge Pa Triangle, Havelock Hills and Woodthorpe Terraces, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 8 months in 10% new French oak barrels." Raymond Chan, March 2017.
"Dark plum, blueberry, toasted almond and clove characters with a touch of dried herb omplexity. Excellent fruit vibrancy combined with delicate oak infusion, wonderfully structured by polished tannins. Beautifully fruited and fragrant." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
Deep crimson with a floral lift and charm, Estate Merlot/Cabernets ’15 has a beguiling, aromatic intricacy with a core of sustained, poised, ripe fruit on the palate. Chocolatey merlot, and sumptuous raspberry and blackberry notes from cabernet franc give a supple weight to the wine. The tapenade and dried herb of cabernet deepen the savoury appeal and varietal expression. Artfully crafted, graceful and svelte, Estate Merlot/Cabernets ’15 is a deceptively elegant wine.
