Oakgrove Estate Cabernet Merlot 2016 (12 x 750mL) SEA

Background - Founded by father and son, Oakgrove Estate is the product of more than four decades’ experience in the Australian wine industry. With the mission of sharing Australian wine with the world,

Oakgrove Estate provides high quality examples of Australia’s best known varietals at an affordable price.

Region - Oakgrove Estate wines are sourced from vineyards across NSW and Victoria which are in close proximity to Australia’s famous and beautiful Murray River, widely known to be the life of Australia’s food bowl. The natural creation of the river system millions of years ago in Australia has provided rich fertile soils from which these vineyards benefit.

The climate in these areas provides hot summers with cold to mild winters allowing ideal growing conditions each year to produce consistent quality and fantastic wines year after year.

Vineyard - The fruit for Oakgrove Estate wines are carefully selected from low yielding vineyards, planted on clay soils which provide ideal levels of nutrients and water retention. The grapes are harvested at night as the cooler conditions help ensure that the fruit arrives in the winery in perfect condition.

Winemaking - The grapes are selectively harvested in February during the night. The fruit was destemmed only and gently pressed to avoid excessive phenolics. After cold settling, the juice was racked

and then fermented in tank using a neutral yeast to express the varietal aromas. A portion of the wine receives oak maturation on a mixture of French and American oak for added complexity.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour & Aroma - Bright ruby red, fragrant fruits and aromas of black and red berries.

A full bodied and powerful red wine with elegant aromas and flavours of ripe black and red fruits. 2015/16 growing conditions allowed for excellent development of the grapes, resulting in a fresh and approachable wine. Carefully blending two of Australia’s best varieties, the addition of the merlot provides a soft, luscious finish.
