CaernetSauv Merlot Shiraz Malbec Langhorne Creek South Australia
The four noble claret varietals, Merlot and Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, exclusively Langhorne Creek parcels are assembled into a generous and well balanced, eminently ready to drink red wine. Cabernet provides fine tannin structure, Shiraz adds berry fruit weight, Malbec brings perfume, Merlot rounds out the palate. Brimming with lifted fruit and spice flavours, a mouthfilling wine lined with the softest tannins and delicate oak, culminating on a long and flavoursome, decidedly savoury Langhorne Creek finish.
The moniker Tamblyn is in recognition of the winemaker's ancestors who migrated to Australia from Cornwall. Tamblyn is a wine formulated by Langhorne Creek's Rebecca Willson, one of Australia's champion winemakers. A finely engineered balance of fruit, making a whole which is greater than the sum, at the same time achieving a soft, well rounded approachable palate structure. Exclusively Langhorne Creek, the varietal components of Tamblyn are separately vinified in open top fermenters for maximum extraction of colour and flavour. Tamblyn is treated to eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and prior use French and American 225 litres oak barriques prior to assemblage. Alcohol 14.5%
Deep crimson red in colour. A bouquet of dark plums and spiced fruit, gum leaves and violet. Aromatic cocoa/ vanilla characteristics of quality French and American oak show through, accentuating the fruit without dominating. An absorbing red wine, but easy, uncomplicated and ramped up with sweetness, a terrific drink now proposition to all good food.
