Vortex Margaret River

Mélange Rouge 2016

Varieties

Cabernet Sauvignon 49%, Cabernet Franc 33%, Petit Verdot 18%

Region

Margaret River

Viticulture

The fruit for this blend was predominantly SA126 clone Cabernet and Cabernet Franc from a gravelly loam soil vineyard in the Wallcliffe sub-region. The Petit Verdot component was a blend of Wallcliffe and Treeton sub-regions.

Wine making Notes

Mélange Rouge (red blend) is a seductive vortex of old world varietals. The fruit was crushed and destemmed then fermented in a combination of rotary and static fermenters at 26C for 5-7 days. A portion of the Cabernet was left for a period of extended maceration on skins followed by a gentle pressing adding plushness and a savoury textural element. The various batches underwent malolactic fermentation in tank before 14 months maturation in a selection of French Oak barriques (25% new). The distinct individual components combine to create a wine greater than the sum of its parts.

Colour

Deep red with ruby hues

Nose

The aromas are vibrant and lifted ripe blueberries and dark plums meshed with hints of spicy, toasty oak.

Palate

The palate is generous and packed full of juicy fruits of the forest and chocolate characters. Full bodied and robust yet a balanced wine supported by dense tannins and a long, satisfying fruity finish.

Alcohol
