2017 White Label Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon
The blending of Merlot to Cabernet or vice versa has been an Australian style for many years. The idea is that the resultant wine is better than the sum of its parts, each component lending its quality to the other.
Complimenting and accentuating strengths. That is always the intent of a blend. Our Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular re-order among our Club Members and there are many that swear by the 2015 vintage, and those of the 2016 – each camp citing the
differences. The 2017 is again a distinct blend. This is proof of the now colloquial term ‘same same but different’!
This wine epitomises a red wine for Australian summer. Enjoy the boldness of the Central Ranges region of NSW – where the somewhat cooler climate growing conditions create a lighter Cabernet and a Merlot with definitive structure and smooth tannins.
