Richland Cabernet Merlot

richland_cabmerlot

“The reds and whites under the Richland label come from

Westend Estate in the Riverina, and are of sound quality.

The Cabernet Merlot is firmer structure and good depth of

grape flavour with some dry tannins adding length”

PADDY KENDLER, HERALD SUN 2008

 

WINE INFORMATION

Vintage: 2008

Region: Riverina

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Alcohol: 14.5%

 

TASTING NOTE

Richland Cabernet Merlot exhibits a fresh sweet plum bouquet with toasty complexity which leads to a rich, mouth filling palate of juicy berry fruit flavours and mint and violet characters of Cabernet. This fruit driven, medium bodied wine has a soft firm finish, which will gain complexity over the next 3-4 years.

 

FOOD ACCOMPANIMENTS

Minced veal, mushrooms and ricotta cannelloni, rabbit stew with fresh herbs and black olives, vegetable lasagna.
