LS Merchants Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
'A wine we were hesitant to make as small producers of alternate and different styles of wine but the fruit arrived to us by chance from good friends and fellow winemakers.
One parcel was from Wilyabrup and one from Wallcliffe, the former brings power and structure and the later elegance and aromatics.
2017 was a difficult year but a year that has provided very subtle, textured wines and this is no different. Loaded with blue fruits and raspberry acidity complemented by briary hints and a touch of chocolate. This wine is delicate with an underlying power, gravelly tannins match the acid to give length. The wine spent 32 days on skins in an extended maceration and then 10 months in 25% new oak.'
