The fruit was hand-picked and hand sorted to ensure only the highest quality grapes were allowed into the fermenter. Fermentation occurred in open-top fermenters with indigenous yeast for ten days. The wine was then gently pressed off skins in a basket press to complete alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tank. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine spent 14 months maturation in new and seasoned French oak. This is a small volume wine that was handled separately throughout its life and speaks of the region where the grapes are grown.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant, dark red in colour with a purple hue, this wine displays intense aromatics of cassis, mulberry and blueberry with hints of mint and dried herbs highlighted with vanillin derived from French oak maturation.

The 2017 Brookland Valley Cabernet Merlot shows a lovely medium bodied elegance.
Classic Margaret River characters of blackcurrant, plum and fruit cake flavours are complemented by hints of milk chocolate and bay leaf. French oak spice and fine powdery tannins give the palate an elegant structure and sustained length.
Cellar for 6-8 years.
