2015 Rosenvale Cabernet Merlot



Cabernet is a diverse flavor profile and we aim for the dark fruit with leafy, fresh herb and tobacco notes in different strengths for our Estate and Reserve wines.There is always batches of wine that doesnt make the stylist approach we take for the Estate and Reserve Cabernet so they find their way into our blends label.

Merlot, well we have 4 (not so new now) clones to Australia but they are still unique. We just had to pick some of this fruit……

Colour: Cherry red, medium depth with a hint of purple on the hue.
Aroma: Plums, mulberry and fresh tobacco
Palate: Layered with Plums, red fruits then mulberries with fine silky tannins showing green capsicum, mint, dried herbs, with a hint of chocolate through the finish.Enough length to satisfy. Fruit, oak, acid, tannin balanced on the softer side.

Cellaring: 2016 –2021
Alcohol: 14.5%
T/A: 7.3g/l
pH: 3.48
Residual Sugar: 0.76 g/l

Food Pairing

Foods: I just pulled this off the bottling line so I am going to try it with a pan fried crunchy pepper steak (to my liking) with steamed vegetables and boiled 1/2 potato’s with a dash of butter to melt over the top.
