Trentham Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Estate CABERNET SAUVIGNON MERLOT
Deep crimson red colour with lifted aromas of dark berries and chocolate, showing flavours of blackcurrant and licorice supported by subtle French oak. Tannins are ripe and fine, providing structure and length to this rich, full bodied wine.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are the classic varieties of Bordeaux with Cabernet Sauvignon providing the structure and tannin where the Merlot gives softness and warmth. Sourced from our best vineyard and producing fruit with concentrated flavour and great colour.
The grapes were de-stemmed and pumped into the fermentation vessel. The fruit was fermented on skins for 7 days before pressing. After pressing, a portion of the wine was matured in French oak barrels. The wine was then blended and bottled in August 2014.
Goes very well with most red meat dishes and hard cheeses.
