Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot McLaren Vale South Australia
Make a date with Brokenwood, an evening round the table with a comfort roast of your finest fare, savoured slowly alongside your favourite company and a bottle of the very best. Stylistically true to its McLaren Vale provenance, a seductive, textural accord of Merlot and Cabernet, its chocolatey, cherry ripe fruit character is cossetted by a cradle of supportive oak and length of ripe, sweet tannins. A lovely mellow wine, to accompany home baked, potato topped, steak and kidnie or red wine shepherd's pie.
A tale of two winegrowing regions, fruit is harvested from choice vineyards in McLaren Vale, crushed and chilled to tanker, transferred to the Pokolbin wineworks in Hunter Valley. Parcels are treated to a vinomatic fermentation, without any excessive plunges or movement of juices, to extract only the finest supple tannins. Upon completion, components are filled to a selection of seasoned and new, French and American oak barriques for term of maturation.
Dense red, youthful purple hues. Red fruit bouquets, bramble and cassis, varietal Merlot plummy notes and Cabernet leaf over hints of cedar. A well rounded, stylish palate of ripe, dusty fruit flavours, plummyness, red cherries and game over a length of yielding tannins and background carob oak. A joy alongside lamb roast, pure delight with olive baguette and firm tangy cheese.
