COOPERS CREEK “GIMBLETT GRAVELS” SV CABERNET MERLOT 2015 750ML

$21.00

Tasting Notes

Colour: A beautiful deep purple/red, with a dark core and bright, flashing rim.
Bouquet: Very Bordeaux like (Left Bank that is!) with a lovely mix of primary fruit and subtle oak.
Palate: Not a massively full-bodied wine, but a wine with great balance, fineness and finesse. The tannins are soft and round and there is just enough fruit sweetness to give the wine real length and focus.

Cellaring
Already approachable, but we expect this wine to cellar for a number of years.

Food Matches
This medium bodied, dry red wine is a perfect match for red meats and pasta dishes. Serve at room temperature.

Description

Our 2015 SV Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot has been assembled from two different parcels of fruit harvested from our Omahu Road Vineyard on the Gimblett Gravels. The final assemblage is 53% Cabernet Sauvignon & 47% Merlot. The parcels were handled separately and run off to oak for aging. Total time in barrel was around 12 months. Only a small amount of new oak was used. Vintage 2015 was stunning on ‘The Gravels’ and the fruit was in delightful condition. Vinification followed a very traditional Bordeaux model and this has allowed the terroir to shine through.
