2014 Cabernet Merlot

CM_Wairarapa_KA blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec.

We aim to make a fragrant and elegant wine showing Bordeaux characteristics. The wine is then aged 30% in new French barriques with the balance in seasoned oak for 12 month.

The bouquet is beautifully fragrant showing redcurrant and black fruits on the  nose. A medium bodied wine with hints of cassis mingled with cedar and savoury herbs which is soft and approachable with a firm rich middle palate weight and nicely balanced oak and tannins.
