Bunnamagoo Estate Cab Sauv Merlot 2016

Sent as part of a sample pack of winners from the 2018 Mudgee wine show, this wine bringing home "Winner of the Best Red Wine (not Shiraz or Cabernet).

Dusty and earthy, savoury notes emanate forth more than any fruit. Dark chocolate, nuts - each component is fermented separately, with elevage then in a combination of old and new American barrique. 

Deep wine, chewy, muddy tannins that seem - quintessentially and in perhaps a somewhat contrived label - typically Mudgee. 90

Tasted on: Tuesday 26th February
