Geoff Merrill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - 12 pack
The colour is a rich dark red with ruby hues. On first opening, the light fresh herbaceous Cabernet notes come forward. Looking deeper, a strong green capsicum spice backs up the warmer savoury meaty notes, complex oak characters and blueberry fruits on display. The palate gently builds after the first glass into a very well structured and strongly flavoured muscular wine. Dark fruits, ripe firm tannin and ample acidity blend seamlessly with the integrated oak flavour and structure completing this great example of a top end Cabernet.
By all means open it now but the rewards will come with patience. Best drinking from 2022 to 2032. Pair it with rare dry-aged Angus beef, mushroom risotto, roast lamb with garlic and rosemary, a gourmet beef burger and finish with a nice hard cheese.
“A selection of our finest barrels from the vintage are selected for our Reserve range and
given additional maturation in oak prior to bottling and cellaring.” - Geoff Merrill
