Rosabrook Margaret River Wines

Wines

2012 Cabernet Merlot

Makers Notes

Deep purple colour with lifted, rich and ripe fruit with balanced oak. Medium bodied palate with fine deep tannins and a succulent deep fruited finish

Vintage Notes

The 2012 growing season was dominated by a succession of warm fronts which swept over the southwest in the new year, however, some good spring rains left the soil moistures sufficient to carry through and in the end a great year for reds.

Vineyard Notes

Our vineyards are in northern Margaret River with soils of mostly fine clay loams over ironstone. All vines are vertically shoot positioned and run in north south aspect.

Vinification Notes

Fermented in open vats and matured in oak for twelve months, fined and clarified before bottling.
