Helmsman Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot 2018

Central Ranges
  • 75cl bottle

The winemaker's art of blending comes to the fore here, with two key red Bordeaux varieties, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, combining to deliver generous red fruits, rounded tannins and a pleasing finish.


Fruit for this wine is sourced mainly from the Central Ranges area that comprises Cowra, Orange & Mudgee in New South Wales.


A happy vintage with a combination of warm and moderate weather in January to March that helped grapes reach their full potential. A lovely vintage that really brings out the perfume and juiciness of this wine.


Traditional red wine vinification in stainless steel tanks in order to retain as much fruit flavour profile as possible.
