Long Yarn 2017 Cabernet Merlot
Colour: Deep purple with blackening core. Nose: Intense cassis, fresh herb and eucalypt before plum, cranberry, spice, gravel and minerals. The aromas are pronounced and primary. Palate: Rich black fruits coat the palate. Waves of cassis and chocolate before a lick of spice. Primary fruits lead before secondary mineral, vanilla tones creep in and tie the wine together nicely.
Vineyard: 92% Cabernet and 8% Merlot fruit sourced from our own Loom Vineyard in the McLaren Vale region. Winemaking: Fermentation was carried out on skins with two pump-overs daily to ensure good extraction. Following fermentation, the wine went into neutral French and American oak for 16 months, with a small portion put in new French oak to impart further flavour and complexity. Vegan friendly. (14%ABV)
