Squire's Blend Cabernet Merlot 2013
A delicious blend of Cabernet and Merlot with ripe plum, mulberry and rich, dark cherry notes combined with elegant oak.
16 March - 11 April 2013
Good winter rainfall led to a warm and dry spring. These dry conditions continued throughout the growing season, which in turn produced an earlier start to vintage. These conditions produced excellent red wines that show great colour and fine tannins.
A portion of this wine was matured in a combination of older French (52%) and American oak (48%) oak barriques for approximately 12 months.
Layers of dark berry fruits with hints of plums and spice. Fine,soft tannins and subtle vanillin oak add to the lingering fruit flavours.
Food Pairing Notes
Perfect with a juicy porterhouse steak with vine roasted tomatoes, roast potatoes and green beans.
