2013 Fermoy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Half Yearly
56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 2% Shiraz
Bright ruby with crimson hues.
The wine shows vibrant blackcurrant and plum fruit characters with underlying liquorice spice and chocolate notes.
An elegant and supple medium bodied wine, the palate shows an abundance of red-berried fruits with layers of dried herb, black olive and mocha spice. Fine, elegant tannins provide structure and length to this well-balanced wine.
16 months of a blend of French and American Oak.
The wine is approachable now, but will provide added complexity over the next 4-6 years.
pH 3.4, 6.7 TA
