Cabernet Merlot

red
$15.95

Complex, elegant nose with black fruit aromas lead the way, along with wood spice and some earthy Old-World rusticity. Medium bodied, with tannins that soothe you rather than smother you.

The classic Bordeaux blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc. Aged for 12 months in barrel before being blended to bottle.

Some of the wines we make are all about a single vineyard site expressing itself while winemakers try to stay out of the way. Blending varieties and vineyards, on the other hand, allows us to play around a little, like a chef with a countertop of great ingredients. Ah, the possibilities! Combining Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc is hardly trail-blazing stuff, but you would be amazed at how much we can change a wine with a 1% flip of the switch. It’s an endlessly fascinating process.

All the savoury stuff. Grilled steak with herbed butter, shepherd’s pie, lentil ragout with rosemary, pasta Bolognese, hard cheeses. & burgers, meaty or otherwise...
