The excellent red 2016 Merlot Cabernet won Silver at the Concours Général Agricole in Paris last month. It’s from the outstanding 2016 vintage and is vibrant and intense with fresh ripe fruit aromas. It is soft, juicy and succulent with long-lasting flavours and a delicious weight of pure ripe fruit and a smooth, velvety texture.
We’re also really pleased with the 2017 Sauvignon which has an intense and pure character on the nose; citrus fresh on the palate, with delicate notes of passion fruits, and subtle nuances of mineral flavours. Well balanced, fresh and at the same time with a soft texture. The purity continues in a long, lingering vibrant finish.
The 2017 Rosé also won Silver at the Concours Général Agricole in Paris last month. A beautiful pale pink colour with hints of strawberry and citrus freshness, that combine the vibrant character of the Cabernet Sauvignon with a hint of roundness brought by the Merlot. Dangerously easy to drink.
