Higher Plane Cabernet Merlot 2015
Aromatically this wine is brightly fruited showing blue, black and red berry notes, along with hints of salted plum, star anise, cinnamon and espresso. The palate also offers an assortment of red and dark fruit, complemented by spice and charred oak characters. A very fine resolved tannin profile combines with appealing natural acidity to create a supple and juicy wine with great length and intensity.
Utilizing all of the Bordeaux varieties rather than simply a Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the blend is enhanced with the addition of Malbec 6%, Cabernet Franc 5% & Petit Verdot 1%. This is a single vineyard origin wine, which reveals elements of fruit, oak, tannin and acidity in absolute harmony. 93 points
