St Huberts The Stag Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2017
|Region||Australia, Victoria, Yarra Valley|
Med-dark garnet with crimson/red hues. The nose is inviting, with lifted blueberries, black currants and briary fruit. Upper Yarra Merlot gives a hint of black olive and star anise, and the Yarra Cabernet, herb and leafy undertones. The wine is medium bodied and balanced with a soft and fleshy mouth feel. Cassis, leaf, cedar and spice flavours follow on from the nose, and oak is very much in the back seat. The ripe - powdery tannins are evident and restrained. 'If you are after a luncheon claret - this will hit the spot….'
