Cookoothama Cabernet Merlot 2007

Cookoothama Cabernet Merlot 2007

Tasting Notes

Deep crimson with a youthful purple hue. Lovely plum aromas infused with hints of spice, herbs and dark chocolate. A very stylish, well structured wine with an intense and concentrated palate of blackcurrant and mint with rich silky tannins and well integrated oak.

Food Accompaniments

This is a great food wine that is versatile enough to compliment a broad range of red meat dishes such as lamb, curries and full flavoured casseroles.


Winemaker Notes

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for this wine is sourced from our Cookoothama Vineyard on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River at Darlington Point in the Riverina. The fruit was harvested in the cool of night and delivered in small batches to the winery. The grapes were crushed, yeasted and pumped over in traditional style to avoid the extraction of bitter tannins. The wine was then transferred to a combination of new and one and two year old French and American oak for further maturation prior to final blending and bottling.
