Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Margaret River Western Australia
The Watershed property is strategically positioned within the most precious winegrowing terroirs, along the major arterial highway for traffic travelling to and from Margaret River township. Senses has accumulated an impressive list of wine show competition awards. Watershed's vineyards are fortuitously positioned astride some of the best soil compositions in Margaret River, where the vines yield harvests of Merlot and Cabernet endowed with exemplary varietal characters, an intensity of flavour and the finest, showroom tannins.
The Senses range are all about capturing the concentration and complexity which can be achieved through barrel ferments and extended maturation. The Watershed property enjoys the influence of balmy maritime climes, growing conditions very like Bordeaux which contribute to the statuesque Medoc style of Watershed Wine Project Cabernet Merlot. The winemaking team are highly proficient at Cabernet Merlot, having collected accolades at the distinguished Mundis Vini in Germany, the world's largest international wine show. Fruit is harvested to healthy levels of baume, crushed and vinified before eighteen months maturation in a selection of fine French oak barrels. Alcohol 14.5%
Deep scarlet colour. Aromas of black currant and fresh mint, liquorice and plums over a measure of mocha and cigar box oak. An effusive palate of ripe berries, plums and cassis, velvety textures are supported by firm but flattering French cedar/ vanilla oak, all complimented by fine silky tannins which linger on the finish.
