Lenton Brae Cabernet Merlot 2018
$ 29.00 incl. GST
Comprising 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and a cheeky 3% Petit Verdot. Winemaking ethos is to minimal tannin extraction to produce a style rich in flavour with a deceptive softness.
Medium bodied with blackcurrant, cassis and dark fruits, this has amazing length and slurpability – the urge to just drink the darn thing off the tasting bench speaks of its approachability. Sweet fruited with fruit cake, spice and fleshy berries, darn appealing is the synopsis here.
Lenton Brae / Margaret River, Wa
Pioneers Of The Margaret River Region
A pioneering producer of Margaret River, Lenton Brae was established in 1982 by Bruce and Jeanette Tomlinson, with winemaking today handled by son Edward. A claim to fame is them being the first producer to popularise the Bordelaise white blend of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, now a flagbearer for the region. A producer in great winemaking stride, the freshness, prettiness and approachability across the board is striking, and the release of Pinot Blanc shows the continued evolution and relevance here. A first rate producer from one of Australia’s most enigmatic wine regions.
“It’s hard to deny that Lenton Brae is a very high quality producer… firmly in the upper echelon of Margaret River blue chip producers.” Mike Bennie, Winefront
