2007 Patina Cabernet Merlot

RRP: $30.00

MEMBER: $22.50

Tasting Note

The palate is mouth filling yet elegant with up front ripe berry and plum fruit flavours. It is a well structured wine with subtle integrated oak, soft tannins, and a lingering back palate.

Winemakers Notes:

Made up primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the cool climate volcanic soils of Orange, this wine is complimented by a small portion of Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine nuances of black currant with good up front palate intensity and a lingering, soft tannin finish while Merlot rounds out the mid palate and contributes dark fruit flavours. The Cabernet Franc contributes a lightly lifted floral note and the sweet spice and plums are compliments of the Shiraz.
