Trentham Cabernet Merlot

Cracka Review

Cabernet Sauvignon and merlot are the classic varieties of Bordeaux. In the Cabernet Merlot blend, Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure and tannin where the Merlot gives softness and warmth. The Merlot grapes ripen before the Cabernet Sauvignon, generally by 1 -2 weeks depending on the vineyard.

The Cabernet Melot blend is rich and soft with good structure. A complex palate consisting of blackcurrant, plum, licorice, spice and mocha is complimented with a smooth silky finish.

Food - This wine will be delicious when partnered with grilled red meat, saucy pastas and strong cheeses. Enjoy now and until 2013.
