2014 Cluny Cabernet Merlot
The Cluny was made from fruit which was harvested at its optimum maturity. The wine was fermented for 7 days under controlled temperatures in a combination of rotary and static fermenters. Maturation for 14 months in small French and American oak barrels has assisted in the development of a wine that shows vibrancy and richness.
Medium bodied, with complexity and depth derived from the blending of four grape varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. A perfumed nose with lifted notes of sarsaparilla, liquorice and dried herb. Sweet dark fruit flavours of juicy plum and blackcurrant are supported by gentle tannins and well-integrated oak. A perfectly balanced wine with an elegant finish.
