2019 Market Collection Cabernet Merlot
A classic interpretation of cool-climate blending. The Market Collection Cabernet Merlot is a delicious medium-bodied dry red with flavours of cherries, strawberries, black currant and hints of black peppers and spice. Barrel aged to add to the complexity and smooth the tannins, providing a medium long finish. Makes a great choice for large dinners and a wonderful gift for a discerning wine lover.
When considering food pairing, dishes like smokey Texas-style oven brisket or herb and lemon pork chops or mushroom Marsala with barley, will compliment the wines soft tannins and bolster fruit characteristics.
