This Banrock Station cabernet merlot blend is a medium bodied red wine, exhibiting lively fruit notes, supported by subtle oak influences. The bouquet displays pronounced vanilla pod, dark plum, and fresh black cherry aromas, while the palate has more of those plum and cherry flavours, complemented by some blackcurrant influences, with hints of cinnamon and spice. The oak in this wine is well integrated and has fine, soft tannins, which coupled with the delicacy of the fruit, presents an enjoyable acid structure, allowing for a smooth finish with lingering flavours. Try this wine with rich, creamy pasta dishes, or a roast chicken.
Please note this wine is only available up to half dozen lots, or in a mixed dozen.
