Freycinet Cabernet Merlot

Savoury, elegant and firm in the spirit of Bordeaux clarets!

Fully ripened 73 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 19% Merlot has produced a full bodied style with plenty of cool climate charm and elegance. The enticing aroma reveals a mixture of black currant and berry fruits with herbs, olives and cedar perfume. The vibrant palate is firm but elegant featuring liqueur cherries and plum fruits with some sweet oak/cedar characters derived from 18 months maturation in French oak casks. The finish is long and savoury, driven by trademark Cabernet tannins. Decanting and allowing the wine to breathe is recommended to bring out extra nuances of flavour and complexity.  Beautiful cigar box perfume and smoothness will develop with cellaring over 10 to 20 years in a good cellar.
