Subtle and still powerful. Terrific stuff.
About The Wine
Loosely translating to Cellar Blend, Cuvee de Chez is Adrian's interpretation of a traditional Bordeaux blend.
We see a blend of 5 varieties in this wine, shown off with great finesse. The Cabernet Sauvignon providing structure; Merlot & Cabernet Franc providing red fruit flavours and savouriness, a little splash of Petit Verdot adds acidity and a tiny hint of Malbec gives a dark roundness to the finish.
Built around balance, not out and out power, there is some clear craftsmanship shown in this great release.
