Orange, NSW

Varietal: Cabernet Merlot Franc 
Current Vintage: 2010
Bottle Size: 750ml

Tasting Notes:

Matured in French oak barriques, this Cabernet blend is luscious and juicy with ripe fruit and fine tannins. It displays fragrant aromas of dark-berried fruits with a touch of tobacco on the nose. The palate is more medium-bodied with a ripe plummy centre, finely grained tannins and a dry, decent length.

Cabernet Sauvignon (61%), Cabernet Franc (22%), Merlot (17%)

Wine Region:

The Orange wine region is defined as the area above 600m in the local government areas of Orange, Cabonne and Blayney and can be usefully described as a circle around Orange. The Orange region is ideal for grape growing and winemaking because of the combination of geology, soils, climate and temperature. Together these factors combine to produce grapes and wine of distinct flavour and colour. The climate perhaps plays the biggest part in giving Orange some distinct natural advantages - the cool temperatures during the growing season coupled with dry autumn conditions are ideal for grape growing.

Food Pairing:

The perfect match with barbecued spare ribs
