MARGARET RIVER
Varietal: Cabernet Merlot
Current Vintage: 2014
Bottle Size: 750ml 
Case Size: 6

TASTING NOTES:

Developing nose showing plum and some raisin characters, with tobacco and bay leaf complexity. There's definitely some age here on the palate with more savoury, leathery tones, but plenty of layers and great tannin structure keep it going through to the lingering finish. Recommended.

'65% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 5% each of malbec and shiraz; the vinification is in the usual McHenry Hohnen template, with whole berry, partial wild yeast ferment in a stone vat, basket-pressed, no additions other than minimal SO2. Deeply coloured, it has a medium to full-bodied palate replete with blackcurrant, redcurrant, black olive and bay leaf flavours within a mesh of fine-grained tannins.' 95 points, James Halliday's Wine Companion

WINE REGION:

Located in Western Australia. The principal grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chenin Blanc and Verdelho. The Margaret River is recognized as one of the best Bordeaux-like regions outside of France and produces wines in a very unique European style, much different than the rest of Australia.

FOOD PAIRING:

Pepper steak with seasonal vegetables.
