Discovery Hill Cabernet Merlot 2017 (12 x 750mL) Murray Darling

Vintage - The wet spring f ollowed by a mild summer lead to a later and compressed harvest for all varieties this year. Our vineyard and winemaking teams worked tirelessly during vintage 2017 to ensure all varieties were harvested at optimal flavour development, producing elegant wines with lower alcohol levels which we are sure will delight our consumers.

Wine making - Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from selected vineyards were harvest at optimum maturity to maximise varietal fruit flavours and supple tannins. Fruit was fermented and left on skins in Static and rotary fermenters for seven days to maximise colour and flavour extraction. After primary fermentation the wines were soft pressed and underwent malolactic fermentation before being aged on French oak for six months before being blended and filtered prior to bottling
