2017 Estate Cabernet Merlot

2017 Estate Cabernet Merlot


Margaret River produces some of the greatest Cabernet blends in Australia. Churchview has produced a wonderfully vibrant blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot and 3% other Bordeaux varieties.

Category: GTIN: 000000000010


The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are all estate grown fruit.  The Cabernet Sauvignon came from the block next to the big dam and the Merlot from the Southern end of the property high on the hill.  This vintage has produced a wine with complex aromatics.  Bright and vibrant fruits of plums and blueberries, Peppermint trees and Eucalyptus are married with coastal heath all interwoven with the fruit.  Oak use sits quietly in the background adding subtle spice.

Colour : A brilliant claret red with a ruby hue.

Aroma : Plums, blueberries are powerful and upfront. WA Silver Saltbush adds savoury, almost dusty earthen complexity to it which is so typical of this blend.

Palate: The savoury elements add an initial fine tannin note, which is refreshed by the bright and vibrant fruits.  A great balance of Australian bush and red fruits.
