Bradgate Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2014
“A fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon-driven blend, softened by Merlot with a kiss of Shiraz spicing things up.”
The Stellenbosch Kloof enjoys a cooler climate with influences from False Bay and a refreshing breeze from the West Coast’s Benguela current. These two breezes bring in early morning mists which adds a unique characteristic to Jordan Wines. The velvety rich Merlot complements the intense flavours of the Cabernet Sauvignon, with nuances of spicy Syrah which adds complexity to the blend. Various portions of the blend have spent 10 to 16 months in French Oak barrels. With the use of gravity and gentle pressing, this process ensures a full-flavoured wine with soft, balanced tannins. This beautiful blend was produced for immediate enjoyment, but will gain complexity with 2-4 years careful cellaring. An absolute steal at the price.
