Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from selected vineyards in the Murray Darling and Swan Hill regions were harvest at optimum maturity to maximise varietal fruit flavours and supple tannins. Fruit was fermented and left on skins in static and rotary fermenters for seven days to maximise colour and flavour extraction.
After primary fermentation the wines were soft pressed and underwent malolactic fermentation before being aged with American and French oak for six months before being blended and filtered prior to bottling.
Soft and juicy, the SELECTION 23 Cabernet Merlot is the ultimate entertainer, effortlessly mingling plum flavours with blackberry and spice and introducing to the party fine supple oak tannins right at the end. Sure to charm friends and dazzle the family, this is one wine you won't want to leave off the guest list.
