2005 C J Pask Declaration Cabernet Merlot Malbec

RRP:$50.00
6 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
In cricketing terms, a declaration is when the batting team has made so many runs that the captain thinks they have the other team covered. Likewise, C J Pask only declares their Cabernet Merlot Malbec when they are confident it has the runs on the board. They meticulously identify the best barrels which they follow up with extensive blending trials. The result is this rich, complex red blend with lashings of blackcurrant and mulberry flavours and a long, satisfying finish.

Winemaker's Note

Colour: Dense purple - red.

Aroma: Berry fruits, spice and toasty fruitcake.

Palate: Intense, rich berry flavours. Spice and cassis characters are supported by fine tannins, sweet oak provides backbone and balance.

Other Reviews
Refined, with deep, youthful colour, the 2005 vintage is a Gimblett Gravels blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (48 per cent), Merlot (35 per cent) and Malbec (17 per cent), matured for 18 months in French and American oak. Warm, savoury and tightly structured, it offers excellent concentration of brambly, herbal, spicy flavours.
