Wedderwill 17°C Red 2008
Warm and spicy; gathering of dark berries, with notes of scattered plum. There is a soft, mellow sun-dried tomato flavour to this red blend. The Merlot adds plumminess to the nose, while the Cabernet brings forth wild berry flavours. A full mid-palate is present, with round, soft tannins and good aging potential. Malbec and Shiraz introduce spiciness. (Like the other varietals, these were lightly barrel aged).
36% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Shiraz, 3% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
Ideally served at 17°C.
In The Vineyard
Few producers work so closely and organically with Mother nature. South facing vineyards yield to the passing winds, embrace the sun, and survive each turbulent storm. The result is wines of character and quality - to be savoured, whatever the weather.
