Church Road Tom Merlot Cabernet 2014
Inky purple black with a complex aromatic and cedary bouquet with lifted red fruits and hints of camphor, violet, anise, rose spice and fragrant herbs. The palate is almost ethereal with beautifully fine tannins and a savoury frame with spicy oak supportive but never intrusive. Blackcurrant and black cherry fruit is concentrated complex and ripe, there’s a hint of chocolate, a smidgen of mint and other dried herbs and the creamy finish just seems to float. A blend of 60% Merlot from the Gimblett Gravels and 40% Cabernet from Redstone.
