Temple Bruer Preservative-Free Cabernet Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

What does preservative free mean? Well, the addition of sulphur to ensure wines stay fresh, can set off allergies in those who are susceptible. Making a wine preservative free is the next best thing, however they are made with a drink now mentality and should be kept on the wine rack within easy reach. It’s a cuddly blend of Cabernet and Merlot that ensures up front fruit and classic structure. Imbued with mulberry and, sweet berries and mint the wine has mouth coating tannins and a cedar like complexity.

Winemaker's Notes

Sourced from the Temple Bruer’s certified organic vineyard the fruit used to create this wine was primarily co-fermented. The Must was pumped over the cap for approximately one week, gentle pressing followed before the fermentation finished. Malolactic fermentation was encouraged and at its completion the wine was matured in oak barrels. French oak was principally used to create this wine.

Appearance: his wine is deep red in colour.

Nose: The nose shows mulberries, red forest berries and mint. Regional characters of earth and musk also show.

Palate: The palate is full and well supported by fine mouth coating tannins. The wine finishes dry with flavours of earth and cedar lingering.

Alcohol: 13.6%

Grape Variety: 67%, Merlot 26%, Cab Franc 7%.
