Lenton Brae Cabernet Merlot 2015

$23.00 ea

CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK

Has a very strong perfume of gum leaves and peppermint, but it’s also floral, chocolaty and packed with almost jubey fruit. Medium bodied, chocolate and berries, smooth fleshy tannin lets it glide trough the mouth, slight warmth, but lovely freshness and plump berry and chocolate flavours run on a pretty long finish. Ready to go

Best matched with the following food groups

Lenton Brae Cabernet Merlot, the emphasis is on minimal tannin extraction to produce a style rich in flavour with a softness to allow the wine to be enjoyed upon release.

Winemaking techniques such as cooler fermentation temperatures and earlier removal of the wine from its skins and seeds have facilitated this, whilst avoiding the extraction of bitter, green tannins.

The 2014’s release comprises 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. Aromatically, the wine displays fruit cake and spice -like floral notes of Petit Verdot whilst on the palate, the structure and tannin of Cabernet Sauvignon compliments the mid palate sweetness and fleshy mouthfeel of the Merlot grape.

The Lenton Brae Cabernet Merlot would beautifully partner roast lamb, but would also compliment most red meats.

“93 points”

Lenton Brae Cabernet Merlot should be in the vernacular of every Margaret River wine lover – a range that unfailingly delivers.  This, a medium weight, blue fruit-centric red with classic regional bay leaf herbal notes and lithe tannins on slippery fruit.  Finishes with pucker.  Superb drinking.”

Mike Bennie, WBM, Jan 2016

“92 points”

“What a delicious little cabernet merlot blend from one of the best producers of this style in the region.  Juicy vibrant primary fruit characters of red berry and perfumed cherry characters.  The palate just bounces from the glass with deliciously fruit-driven flavours supported with a smidgeon of oak and fine grainy slightly chalky tannins.”
