River Retreat Cabernet Merlot
River Retreat CABERNET MERLOT
Harvested at ideal ripeness the grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for 7 days with regular pump-overs to extract colour and flavour. After pressing the wine was aged with select French oak before blending and bottling.
Deep red, purple in colour with aromas of dark berries and a hint of chocolate; full of flavour with great fruit sweetness balanced by ripe tannins and a little oak. A seamless blend, finishing soft and long.
An ideal accompaniment to beef and other red meat dishes.
