Howling Wolves Claw Cabernet Merlot CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Margaret River Western Australia
The majority of vineyard blocks contributing fruit for Howling Wolves are bordered by towering eucalypt trees that influence the grapes to develop distinctive qualities which are a trademark of Margaret River. This is particularly recognizable in the red varietals which take on unique mint and gum leaf characters. A spell of ageing under fine French oak further infuses the palate with vanilla bean and light spice.

Howling Wolves retain access to the finest parcels of Cabernet and Merlot in Willyabrup. Grapes are harvested from blocks which have been earmarked on the basis of strong varietal definition and refined tannins, to a schedule determined by full physiological ripeness. Following a sorting and crush at the winery, the batches are treated to a cold soak for the extraction of flavour and tannins, before being inoculated by a selection of yeasts for temperature controlled fermentations in tank. Matured to soften the tannins and integrate the components under a selection of French oaks, followed by a 100% vegan fining to smooth the palate and make Howling Wolves approachable immediately on release.
Rich dark red colour. A delicious bouquet of mulberry, cherries and fruits of the forest. Blackberry and plums, red ruits and chocolate on the medium bodied palate, finishing softly on a note of fine balance. To accompany roasts, game dishes or a sauced poultry recipe.
