The 2008 Gramps Cabernet Merlot is a cleverly crafted blend showing old-fashioned richness and power, while still revealing the more contemporary cues of great balance and vibrant fruit flavours. Structured for longevity, this wine has masses of flavour which will delight those who enjoy primary fruit characters and choose to drink it now, yet will go the distance if carefully cellared for 10 or more years.
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red with intense purple hues.
The ripe and rich flavours of red berries and blackcurrant from Barossa grown Cabernet Sauvignon are balanced with fresh mulberry and spice from Barossa Merlot. A structured wine with integrated oak providing added complexity.
A full bodied wine, with powerful rich fruit characters showing nuances of both varieties. Assertive yet supple sweet grape tannins provide rich texture, great length and structure complexed with fine grain oak.
Try it with red meats or tomato based pasta.
Drink now or it will go the distance if carefully cellared for 10 or more years.
