Meerlust Red

$42.95 aud

This wine was produced in limited quantities from young vines on the historic Meerlust Estate and will benefit from further ageing.

The wine has an intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim; bright and vivacious in the glass, youthful.

The nose is expressive with powerful cassis, plum, exotic spice and hints of floral aromas.

On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with intense flavours of crushed black fruit, cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate.

The tannins are soft and silky, the acidity fresh, the flavour profile focused and linear.

The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste

Ageing Potential:  12 - 15 years from vintage date.

Blend Information:  52% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot
