Concrete & Clay Merlot Cabernet Ripe red fruit with excellent intensity and acidic drive it is a wine that will age well over time. The 2017 vintage was an excellent year for these two Bordeaux varieties.
Hand harvested from our estate vineyard in the coastal suburbs of Bangholme. 2017 saw long ripening conditions and moderate sugars with great natural acidity requiring no adjustment. Destemmed, saigneed for concentration and given 4 weeks extended skin contact. Matured for 12 months in neutral French barriques.
“It’s a lovely blend. Balanced & more than a subtle Bordeaux personality.”
