Cabernet Merlot Orange
Next day dispatch available on this item!
At 620m altitude this cool climate vineyard produces superb Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Dark plum and black currant on the nose. Initial up front cassis sweetness with mouth filling Cabernet tannins, a spicey tang and a silky lingering Merlot finish. Drinking well from 2019 or cellar until 2026. This would be one to put away for more silky tannins.
