Cabernet Merlot 2009



Wignalls Cabernet Merlot 2009


Winemakers Notes



Fruit driven, soft and voluptuous and medium bodied. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot has enhanced the style to be suited to most peoples palates, with firm structured tannins from “sweet” French oak treatment. The nose consist of cigar box and chocolate, with hints of plums and blackberries evident on the palate.

Approachable and easy to drink, this Cabernet Merlot is pleasing on the nose and soft, medium bodied on the palate. 

This drink-now wine is perfect for that long lunch or as an accompaniment to a rich beef casserole on cold winter nights. Try it with some of your favourite cheddar and pepper crackers.
