Morlet Coeur De Vallee Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

A 75:25 blend of Cab Sauv and Cab Franc, 16months in artisan French Oak brings together the many flavour components to create an elegant, harmonious wine that will continue to age for decades. An Intense and complex bouquet of red, black and blueberries intermixed with notes of cassis, Quesch plum, blond tobacco and a hint of black pepper. Full-bodied, the palate is reminiscent of the nose, with a creamy texture, richness, powerful mid-palate and beautiful depth. The silky tannins and complex aromas create a harmonious ensemble, leading to a very long and smooth finish.

The To Kalon Creek runs through the property, and the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc vines benefit from the gravelly and loamy Bale soil derived from an alluvial fan in this warm yet temperate climate.
