Description

Sourced from the NSW Hilltops region, at an elevation of around 600m.

Tasting Note

Le Rouge, meaning “the red” in French, is a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It combines the dense, full bodied structure of Cabernet with the rich chocolatey middle palate of Merlot!

Vineyard

The fruit was sourced from some of the Hilltops’ finest vineyards and was picked in early April at around 13.5be.

Winemaking

After picking, the fruit was crushed and destemmed into open top fermenters, where a warm, even fermentation took place. Once pressed, the wine was matured for 10 months in French oak barriques, a third of which were new.

Cellaring

Though drinking beautifully now, this fine wine will gain further complexity and interest over the next 8-10 years.

Food Match

A perfect match for roast duck or chicken, red meats and hard cheeses
