2012 Geoff Merrill Pimpala Vineyard McLaren Vale Cabernet M

MCLAREN VALE, SA
Varietal: Cabernet Merlot
Current Vintage: 2012
Bottle Size: 750ml 
Case Size: 6 

TASTING NOTES:

The colour is deep and rich. The aroma is most definitely strong in Cabernet, with mint, menthol, black olive and chocolate. Complex earthy and herbaceous notes blend with cedar and leather making this a very interesting wine indeed. The palate is full of life, has wonderfully intense fruit characters, it is exceptionally well structured with excellent tannins and balanced acidity. This wine is still very much in its youth and will greatly reward those with patience. Cellar for another 5-8 years with confidence.

Wine Region:

Located approximately 35km south of Adelaide in South Australia. Grapes were first planted in 1838 and some vines are more than 100 years old and are still producing. Today there's more than 88 cellar doors. McLaren Vale is recognized as one of the best Shiraz growing regions in Australia, second only to the Barossa.

FOOD PAIRING:

Barbecued meats taste best with this great wine.
