COOPERS CREEK SV “GIMBLETT GRAVELS” 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

Harvested in beautiful condition on Friday 4 April, (just before a huge dump of rain) and trucked overnight to Auckland. Two weeks on skins was followed by MLF in tank. The wine went off to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak in September 2014. The wine received two rackings before coming out of oak in July 2015. The wine then stayed in tank before being bottled on 31 May and 1 June 2016.
