2018 Gatecrasher La Perouse Cabernet Merlot
The Leogate estate tradition of bringing grapes into the winery from districts external to the Hunter Valley has continued in 2018 for the winemaking of "The Gatecrasher" series. This wine is made from grapes grown on our own Certified Organic Vineyard located int he Central Ranges of New South Wales.
Appearance: Deep red in colour with a bright red hue.
Bouquet: A fragrant bouquet of black and red currants with spice and cedary notes.
Palate: The La Perouse is a French style red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon approx. 60% and Merlot approx. 40%. These two grape varieties are grown on our own Certified Organic Vineyard located in the Central Ranges of NSW.
The wine displays a delightfully rounded palate offering a generous mix of red and blue fruits balanced by fine, silky tannins. With 12 months of gentle French oak maturation the palate is well structure, complexity and long.
Cellaring: Excellent drinking now or will further develop with careful cellaring up to 10 years.
