2014 Mount Ashby Cabernet Merlot
Mount Ashby’s latest introduction is a classic combination of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is a medium carmine red with a spicy, fruity nose. The Cabernet component adds some structure, and a touch of blackcurrant to the plummy flavours of the Merlot. Elegant cedar oak underlies soft, well-integrated tannins, and the wine owes its great drinkability to delicacy and finesse rather than to outright power. It will undoubtedly be a great complement to many gourmet dishes.
