The full bodied Grand Vin of the Dominus estate starts with elegant black cherry evolving towards well structured tannins. Early bottling has preserved more fruit character in this vintage. The Bordeaux style blend includes 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.
This is another great wine from El Campo, full of fruity blackcurrant and cherry notes, easy drinking with lots of flavour. The perfect match to your Sunday roast!
La Muse: 93% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec
La Joie: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
Le Désir: 82% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot, 6% Malbec
Warwicks Stellenbosch Three Ladies, was one of the first Cape blends. Pinotage, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon interact beautifully to give a superbly easy but complex ride. Vibrant with energy to drink now, but made also to evolve over time when the leatheryness of the Shiraz and savoury spice of the Cabernet will emerge. Great barbeque wine. A James Bond favourite too!
Richard and Jill McIntyre established the Mooroduc Estate in 1982. It has grown from a small family wine business in Mornington...
Grapes were hand harvested, destalked and lightly crushed into open concrete fermenters. Manual punch downs were done three times a day during fermentation. Fermentation lasted seven days, after which the wine was pressed off the skins and transferred to old French and American barrels for malolactic fermentation and 14 months ageing.
