Made with four Bordeaux-Red varieties all sourced directly from Culmina's estate vineyards, the 2017 R&D Red Blend is a perfumed and richly layered blend of exceptional quality from the Golden Mile Bench.


 

APPELLATION
Golden Mile Bench

VINEYARD SOURCE
A blend of estate grown Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from Arise Bench

WINEMAKING
Matured for 12 months in neutral French oak barrels. 

TASTING NOTE
Initial investigation into this blend of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon displays aromas of ripe blackberry and plum compote. Subsequent random sampling reveals a concentrated yet silky textured wine with integrated tannins and red berry notes. The long-lasting finish suggests another glass should be poured. For research, of course.

FOOD PAIRING
A summertime barbecued brisket and potato salad party.
