Caves Road Classic Red Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot, Margaret River

Caves Road Classic Red Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot, Margaret River

A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot, sourced from vineyards in the northern part of Margaret River around Wilyabrup where the lateritic gravel soils produces Cabernets with a fine structure. The grapes were harvested separately, and undergo a long, cool fermentation allowing the flavours to build, but still preserving the plummy red fruits of the Merlot. A short period of contact with French oak softens and rounds the tannins. Well textured with a soft finish, the Cabernet contributes mulberry fruit, bay leaf and notes of chocolate and orange, whilst the Merlot provide flavours of black plum and violet aromas.
