This is a truly remarkable wine and I have been swaying back and forth between releasing it as Cabernet Merlot versus my signature “Jezza” label.

Product Description

Colour: Red tinted with brick red.

Aroma: Black currant aromas complimented with savoury hints of soy and green olives integrate with cedary oak and inviting maturation characters.

Palate: An inviting ripe fruit palate up-front palate leads to a fruity mind palate with hints of tobacco evolving to a very long back palate with a firm tannin finish.

Cellaring: This wine is drinking well now, and will continue to develop complementary aged characters for at least another 10 years. It is an excellent complement to lamb Roast

67% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and a very small sniff of Petite Verdot.

After crushing the must was cold soaked then pressed off skins during late ferment and aged for 12 months in a combination of both new and old French, American and Hungarian oak barrels.
