Why do we love it, you ask?
We have found the perfect wine to make you the life of the party this winter. First, you buy this for the pretty, blingy label – cue your friends gathering around and ooing and aahing. Next, open this baby up and pour around the rich and juicy easy-drinking fun – cue confetti and good times.
Jimmy Watson Trophy-winning winemaker Jeremy Gordon and his wife Daniela keep racking up the awards at their Margaret River Vineyard and this crazy good-value Cab-Merlot nails it. Quality, quality, delicious quality.
This wine is going to make these types of food delish…and vice versa!
The long version.
Impress your friends. Impress yourself.
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Region: Margaret River
A considerable number of parcels go into making the Cabernet Merlot blend. A number of picks occur starting in the northern areas of Margaret River and working our way south over a couple of months. Each parcel is machine harvested during the cool of the night and transferred to static fermenters for a controlled and cool primary fermentation. After primary ferment each parcel is carefully pressed off. These parcels are sent to a French oak barrels for secondary ferment and maturation.
A slow start to the 2017 vintage, 3-4 weeks later than the previous few years, has meant a later finish which finally ended for us the first week of May. Due to the slow and extended ripening period we have seen some beautifully balances wines. will go down as another great vintage in Margaret River.
This classic red blend is an easy drinking style, made to be enjoyed now.
