Geoff Merrill Premium

2013 G&W Cabernet Sauvignon

“Sourced from our company owned vineyards, “G” is for Graymoor in the Coonawarra and “W” for Wickham Park in McLaren Vale. The individual growing conditions of each site affords us the unique opportunity of being able to blend wines of what each region has to offer.” – Geoff Merrill


Wine Reviews:

95 points – Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)

“Beautifully expressed and immediately appealing, the wine shows crème de cassis, spiced plum, subtle tobacco and vanillin oak characters on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that’s richly textured and expansive. It’s gorgeously flavoursome and persistent with lingering seamless mouthfeel. A blend of grapes from Coonawarra and McLaren Vale.5 stars.”

93 points – Ray Jordan (The West Australian)

“This is an excellent blend of Coonawarra and McLaren Vale cabernet which now has a little bit of age to really show its stuff. Form and structured with mid-palate flesh coming from McLaren Vale and the long, effortless palate a product of Coonawarra. Dark fruits with thickish chocolate characters and blackcurrant. Nice wine, especially at this price.”

90 points- Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

“Deep red colour with strong purple tints, in good condition for its age, the bouquet dominated by oak but there is also blackberry, peppermint and cassis fruit showing. The wine is bright and vibrant, the acidity almost a touch shrill, the flavour intense and bright, firmly upright and youthful. The acidity seems to be keeping it fresh.”
