Product Description

Chalice Bridge Estate Cabernet Merlot

Vintage Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

WINEMAKER Bob Cartwright (Consultant)

REGION Southern Margaret River (Single Vineyard)

COLOUR Deep ruby with striking purple highlights throughout.

NOSE The nose is full of sweet, dark fruits with brambles, cassis, and some herbal and cedar notes to finish.

PALATE The palate is soft and round with a nice richness to it, aided by the addition of merlot to the cabernet sauvignon. The palate shows flavours of blackcurrant, mulberry and hints of dark chocolate, integrated perfectly with some beautiful Margaret River spice. Lovely cedary vanilla notes to finish combine with soft, silky tannins to make this wine a classic Margaret River blend.

FOOD This cabernet merlot is perfectly suited for classic lamb shanks with pasta. Or for something more casual, this wine makes a great addition to any BBQ or pizza night.

CELLARING This wine is intended to be a drink now proposition, with a cellaring potential of 4-5 years. So enjoy it today with family and friends, with its generous fruit flavours, and soft, smooth mouth feel.

VINTAGE / WINEMAKING NOTES In 2010 a warm and dry growing season allowed for rich ripe berry flavours in the fruit. Harvest time was optimum with great seed development providing the soft drying tannins required.
A classic blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. A combination of oak barrel and stainless steel vat maturation was used for a period of 6 months. The blend was assembled, filtered and fined, before being bottled in March 2012 and allowed to further mature for 6 months in bottle prior to release. Stored under screw cap to capture and retain it’s freshness. - Janice McDonald & Paul McGrath (Viticulturalist)
