KC Cabernet Merlot 2010

Through the use of innovative production techniques, we aim to make an approachable yet high quality wine which is ready to drink on purchase.

This bottling will, however, benefit from an additional few years of bottle maturation.

Tasting Notes

Displaying deep intense garnet colour with red brick hues, this wine has an enticingly fruity though classic style. Supple, spicy oak tannins deftly underpin sweet, ripe black cherry and chocolate flavours.



Maturation

Delicious now, though will benefit from a further few years in the bottle

Barrel Aging

The wine underwent a process of micro-oxygenation in stainless steel tanks with staves for 12 months and spent a further 12 months in second and third fill French oak barrels
