2017 Sea Urchin Cabernet Merlot
Both the Great Southern and Margaret River regions experienced a very unusual amount of rain and very cool weather during the middle and latter part of March 2017. This occurrence set up optimal conditions for later Autumn, producing warm and sunny days with cool crisp mornings and evenings. As Autumn 2017 was not too hot, perfect ripening conditions were ensured across both the regions thus producing an elegant and flavoursome Cabernet Sauvignon.
These varieties were picked, fermented in stainless steel vats and left on skins to build tannin structure and complexity. After gentle pressing each parcel was matured with oak separately until final blending.
Grape bubble gum aromas with a hint of dried herb. This full bodied wine has a strong balanced structure of fruit, acid and tannin. A perfect wine to drink now with a juicy steak or age to develop it into a smooth velvety mouthfull of flavour.
Great with your favourite homemade pizza!
