These two classic grape varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot have combined to rise above their individualism and create a new artistic form. Although a thoroughly modern wine style you will discover after short term cellaring a classic revival ‘Renaissance’.
Fruit from this vineyard in McLaren Vale and demonstrates our regions ability to produce a variation of varieties. Closer to the Blewitt Springs part of McLaren Vale the soil is very much sandy profile which contributes to those white pepper spice characters.
All variety components are fermented separately and transferred to barrel. After 9 months in barrel the blend was assembled prior to bottling.
Wine Details & Tasting Notes
9 Months in older French Oak
McLaren Vale 100%
Medium bodied, less ripe than nose suggests and quite elegant and herbaceous. Good length, plenty of spice and classic firm but fine dusty tannins present from the Cabernet.
