The 2016 Cabernet Merlot was produced from select parcels of premium fruit grown on blocks 1a & 3a of our Estate.  The wine is dark red in colour, with a crimson hue.   Aromatics of briar fruits are accompanied by notes of tobacco and tea leaf. The soft and rounded palate displays ripe plum and blackberry fruits and finishes with mocha and toasted oak, providing lovely richness. Elegant tannins provide length and a supple structure.
