About

The Picardy Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc is a wine of particularly good value. A Merlot-dominant, 'Right-Bank' inspired red blend from a Pemberton vineyard in WA, the Pannell family behind this wine make this to drink beautifully from release as well as cellar comfortably for a decade or more. The varieties are planted side by side, where possible, they are co-fermented, every effort taken to create a seamless blend with an old-world feel. On the 2013 release, Mike Bennie wrote, "Has presence in youth, will age wonderfully. Fine feeling wine." in his 94+ point review. You will have to look hard to find a better value example of this classic red blend anywhere in the country.

What it Tastes Like

"At the bucks, if I was a Claret-medium weight red-Merlot fancier, I would be ALL over this. This is very good wine. Love the complex-feeling perfume, lots to sniff on, scents of Aussie bush, warm currants, berry compote, leather, char, wet earth. Savoury leaning palate that gives up firm, black berry fruitiness, loads of herbs and spice, bayleaf, miscellaneous savouriness. It’s medium weight, built around fine but grunty tannins and drags very, very long through the mouth. Has presence in youth, will age wonderfully. Fine feeling wine." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
