Snow Road Cabernet Merlot 2010THIS VINTAGE HAS SOLD OUT!
A classic blend of the rich Blackberry and Mint flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon and the soft Tobacco leaf characters of Merlot. These two varieties combine to offer a style that is rich yet soft on the palate. Made to be consumed in its youth but will benefit from 2-5 years cellaring.
Fermented at 25-28C, daily rack and returns to increase the oxygen contact during the peak period of fermentation. Extended skin contact of 12 days to soften and define the tannin structure of the palate. Enjoy now or cellar for up to 5 years
Dry spring conditions restricted the vine growth early and reduced the crop load. Timely summer rains helped to maintain a healthy canopy that lead to ideal ripening conditions.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
