2020 Cabernet Merlot
On the south coast of Kangaroo Island, between the cliffs and the scrub, a single wooden cross marks the spot. Encrypted with just two words, ‘unknown sailor’, it pays tribute to the brave men and women who dared sail the rough South Aussie seas. Our ‘Unknown Sailor’ is a Bordeaux blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot.
Using traditional winemaking techniques along with 18 months maturation in French and American oak barrels have created a stylish medium bodied wine. The aroma has elements of red currants and strawberry with a hint of vanilla. These characters flow on to the palate which shows abundant fruit sweetness and soft tannins.
- OUR HOT TIP -
Buy two, one for now and one for the cellar as this wine will only get better with time, ageing gracefully over the next 8-10 years.
