**2012 G&W Cabernet Sauvignon SOLD OUT – This special is now valid on the 2013 vintage**
“Sourced from our company owned vineyards, “G” is for Graymoor in the Coonawarra and “W” for Wickham Park in McLaren Vale. The individual growing conditions of each site affords us the unique opportunity of being able to blend wines of what each region has to offer.” – Geoff Merrill
The 2013 vintage was a welcome return to a fairly ‘normal’ vintage. We had good winter and spring rains and only a small reduction in yield across a few varieties.
The ripening period had a small heat ‘hiccup’ but the vines made it through unscathed and ripening continued extremely well enabling us to pick at full flavour ripeness.
The colour is a dark red with youthful hues and good depth. The blend of Coonawarra and McLaren Vale has produced a very wide range of varietal characters on the nose. Ranging from tomato leaf and capsicum through to red berries, chocolate and olives. Subtle use of oak has added herbs and spice, and savoury meat notes.
The palate has a very balanced feed about it. Good length, fruit, tannin and acidity all in the right amounts. It shows bright berry fruits, spice and chocolate flavours, finishing with cocoa and herbs.
“Enjoy with lamb shanks, beef cheek and ribs, BBQ, swiss brown mushrooms, lasagne and pizza”.
