2020 Basket Range Wines Cabernet Merlot

Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are varieties which my father has planted and liked. I agree. Both varieties are grown on north-facing aspects of two different blocks. The varieties show balance, flavour and tannin development, while retaining bright acidity. This wine is a blend of Merlot (33%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (67%).

Soil: Blue and red clay over schist and ironstone; loam over red clay and sandstone.

Winemaking: Each component fermented separately. Both de-stemmed in 1500 vats with gentle pump-overs for around ten days. Matured in seasoned French hogsheads for seven months.

1200 bottles produced.
