CABERNET SAUVIGNON MALBEC
A new twist on the classic Australian blend of Shiraz Cabernet. It is always a challenge to make a blend that allows the varietal components to show off however 2011 The Bull & The Bear manages to synergise the Cabernet Sauvignon & Malbec elements seamlessly.
Lifted, welcoming, red fruited with multi-dimensional bouquets, deft mouthfeel and a core of soft fruits on a graceful finish.
2010 COACH HOUSE BLOCK SHIRAZ
Colour Black core with deep red/magenta rim
AromaComplex array of black fruits, scorched earth, pepper, spice and graphite
PalateThrough the palate come black fruits, spice, subtle meaty notes and earthiness. The palate is tight and long and balanced with fine tannins.
The fruit in 2010 from the various Coach House vineyard sections were crushed and de-stemmed into open top fermenters and pressed at the desired times with an average time on skins of 12 days. At pressing, all free run and pressings were combined in tank and after 24 hours the wine was then racked off gross lees to oak.
Although quite tight, can be drunk now until 2035
The wine was matured in 15% new French oak, 38% in one year old with the balance in older French oak for 20 months, then bottled with minimal fining and without filtration
