Winemaker's Notes

This Cabernet-Merlot is a classically styled blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot that has been aged for six months in French oak barrels. We use the time-honoured tradition of sourcing grapes from our various vineyards in order to combine the best flavour profiles of each site. Each variety is vinified separately then combined to create the final blend. The resulting wine is medium-bodied with layers of flavours. It will remind you of dark chocolate, raspberry and cassis. It is certainly ready to drink now but has the structure to continue to develop in the bottle for 3-5 years.

Vineyard Manager's Notes

The grapes for this wine were grown exclusively in our vineyards. We believe we are custodians of the land and have been practicing sustainable agriculture right from the beginning. We made this Cabernet- Merlot by selecting grapes from more than one of our vineyards. The tradition of sourcing grapes from different vineyards adds character and dimension to wine, and this is a fine example. Our vineyards thrived by very carefully managing the yield from each vine. The result was fully mature, ripe grapes that were brimming with flavour.
