Centennial Vineyards 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is made from fruit grown at our cool-climate Bridge Creek Vineyard in Orange, NSW at an altitude of 850m, giving the wine excellent cool-climate fruit definition. The blend is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot.
The complex nose reveals aromas of mint, raspberry, plum, bay leaf, herbs, espresso and dark chocolate. The palate has definite Cabernet elegance and structure, with a generous addition of softness/roundness from the Merlot component. Redcurrant and earthy plum flavours feature throughout. This cool-climate style has very good palate weight and balance, and a long satisfying finish. Great with beef and lamb. Drink now to 2021.
