90% Cabernet, 10% Merlot Alcohol 13.5% Vol Winemaker Mike Farmillo
Burton 2000 SEA Cabernet Merlot
This wine blends ripe, luscious grapes from South Australia and more restrained fruit from Victoria. Both areas are known for their abundance of sunshine leading to maximum richness and flavour.
Wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes is known for its intense red colour and strong tannins. With the addition of a small parcel of Merlot the winemaker has created a wine that gives a more rounded mouth feel with added softness to the palate.
This wine shows the benefit of blending to produce the best of both varieties. Showing attributes of both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot this wine displays opulent fruit and a vibrant, velvety texture leading to a pleasing integrated finish.
Exposure to wood before bottling has led to some complexity without altering the fruit driven nature of this wine.
Carefully crafted to be enjoyed now this wine is an ideal companion to red meat and game.
