Product Description

A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc

VITICULTURE

Merlot and Cabernet Franc are two varieties, which complement each other. Working with ideal sites ensures the depth and richness of Merlot has been harnessed, whilst the Cabernet Franc, has provided interest, brightness and structure to the wine. The Merlot grapes for this wine were sourced from heavier soil sites. A small parcel of Cabernet Franc from a hillside vineyard was blended to add interest and form Shoot thinning, leaf removal and fruit thinning throughout the season, followed by hand picking ensured only the finest quality grapes.

WINEMAKING

A combination of old and new world winemaking techniques has allowed dark fruits to dominate and produce a soft supple wine with core acidity, structure and tannin.
