2017 Billy Goat Hill Cabernet Merlot
A good intensity of cherry and blackcurrant fruits finished with fine tannins in this classic blend.
This is a classic and popular blend. The warm growing conditions combined with the gentle maceration of skins during alcoholic fermentation, gives this wine a profile featuring red berry fruit flavours of cassis and currants, finely balanced with delicate spice and toasty oak.
