2022 Singlefile Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Great Southern – This wine is a classic Bordeaux blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. The fruit was picked and hand-sorted in late April 2022. The two varietal parcels were cold soaked in small fermenters for three days before undergoing a gentle and extended maceration. This approach helped to soften the tannin profile. The wine was then matured in 225L Bordeaux oak barriques, 30% new, with the balance to aged Bordeaux barriques. The wine was matured in these barrels for fourteen months before being prepared for final blending and bottling..
This wine displays bright and lifted aromas of dark berry, cassis and dried tobacco with gentle oak support. The wine is alluring in its delicacy but also carries serious power. It is both effortlessly mouth filling with juicy red fruit flavours as well as being balanced with acidity and fine-grained tannins which lead to a long finish.
It has nice palate weight and is well suited to red meat dishes such as a roast leg of lamb with garlic and herbs. It will improve with further time in bottle.
