Overview

Great balance, an easy drinking style with depth and flavour. The cooler growing conditions enhanced varietal definition. Generously proportioned with smooth, finely polished tannins, balanced acidity and lively flavours that are the hallmark of the variety. Made for immediate enjoyment but also offers some short term aging potential.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Plummy, mulberry, blackberry notes, a pinch of tarragon and thyme, along with a whisker of vanilla derived from its time in oak.

Palate

The cooler growing conditions enhanced varietal definition. Generously proportioned with smooth, finely polished tannins, balanced acidity and lively flavours that are the hallmark of the variety. Great balance; an easy drinking style with depth of flavour, made for immediate enjoyment but also offers some short term aging potential.

Vineyards

Fruit for the 2010 Omrah Cabernet Merlot is not only principally from the Great Southern but is largely estate fruit with a dash from the Nield Vineyard of Blackwood Valley in the south west of Western Australia. A blend mainly from our four vineyards; grown on well drained gravel laterite soils with a VSP canopy and most importantly managed for maximum light exposure on the fruit which is so important for Cabernet in minimising greenness and aiding in flavour and tannin ripeness.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968 in a stroke of serendipity English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenet's, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire.

He first planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Riesling three years later.

The first wines from these young vines were tight and lean and showed the elegant spice and fruit characters for which this area was to become known.
