Fraser Gallop Estate Cabernet Merlot 2014
A wine brimming with vibrancy of colour in the glass, attractive with lovely deep cherry red hues. The first thing that hits you is how much it smells of fresh pomegranate juice, then some cherry juice and a hint of eucalyptus gum leaf. The palate has lively fresh cranberry and raspberry flavours with persistent tannin grip to give the wine a dry savoury edge. A wine to serve with hearty winter meals like lamb, pasta and cheese influenced meals.
The style of Cabernet Merlot they are making at Fraser Gallop Estate is a wine that has greater freshness from a short barrel maturation and good concentration of flavour that comes naturally from dry grown Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The result is a sumptuous blend that drinks well early however can be cellared for a short period of 4-6 years. The blending of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot has been proven in Margaret River’s short history and elsewhere, such as Bordeaux where the blend originated. The varieties work so well because structural tannins of Cabernet are tamed by the inherent mid-palate richness and softness of the Merlot grape.
