KC Cabernet Merlot 2004

KC Cabernet Merlot 2004

A late vintage characterized by good yields and generously structured, fruity wines with good colour, balance and concentration showing modest ageing potential.

Tasting Notes

2004 KC Cabernet Merlot is made in an approachable style with modest barrel ageing and a focus on accessible fruit flavours. Whilst it will improve in bottle for up to 5 years from the date of bottling, our suggestion is to drink it in its flush of youth, enjoying the fresh fruit flavours and soft tannins whilst still in their prime.

Maturation

Enjoy before 2010

Barrel Aging

Fermentation and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, barrel maturation in 5000L oval vats and 225L barriques for almost 12 months.
