BDX Blend 2015

This wine displays a lifted perfume of violets whilst flavours of juicy blackcurrant & plums delight against a backdrop of fine grained tannins and savoury French oak.In assembling this blend, our winemakers have crafted a finished wine in which the contribution of each assembled part made greater the whole, yet which presents a degree of refinement and seamlessness in a blended varietal wine that is so often elusive.

The final blend represents Cabernet Sauvignon (57%), Merlot (28%), Malbec (8%), Cabernet Franc (7%)

Region Clare Valley
Colour At release the wine is a deep red colour with a purple hue to the edge.
Nose There are subtle floral notes of violet with rich cassis and hints of dark chocolate covered cherries. The oak maturation provides dusty cigar box and rich leather overtones.
Palate This is a full bodied wine with complex layers of flavour. At its core is rich blackcurrant, and dark cherry, beautifully melding with dark chocolate and hints of charry oak with supple underlying tannins. Overall a very complete, complex and most enjoyable wine.
Oak Maturation French oak was employed for its ability to deliver a degree of elegance and length to the palate. The wine was matured for 18 months in French oak before being blended, filtered and bottled.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
