The bouquet of the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Merlot shows blackberries and wild cherries. The medley of dark fruit combined with elegant tannin and integrated oak creates a delicious mouthfeel with depth and lingering flavours. Still a young wine, it will benefit with cellar time.
The 2021 blend consists of 30-40% Merlot and Cabernet Franc, a touch of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Carmenere, with the remaining Cabernet Sauvignon. A low crop level is important to ensure the fruit ripens and achieves maximum flavour. The wine was fermented for 4 weeks on skins before pressing. Natural yeast is used throughout. The wine undergoes oak maturation for 24 months before final blending and bottling without filtration.
