A Rodda Cuvee De Chez Cabernets 2015
Adrian believes that when it comes to Bordeaux varieties, the sum is greater than its parts. Cabernet Sauvignon provides the tannin, length and structural backbone, Merlot contributes blue fruits and plumpness in the mid-palate, Petit Verdot adds perfume and acid line and Malbec gives dark fruits and overall roundness to the finish. With this in mind, each variety was made to ensure its varietal strengths came to the fore.
A very definitive example of modern cool climate Bordeaux blend. The compliment of floral notes and forest berries, leads to medium bodied wine, showing layers of tobacco, earth and leathery nuances. The malbec provides a delicate voluptuousness to the finish, all underpinned by the very elegant structure of oak used.
