The Meritage 2015 was blended in our finest traditions of producing some of the most celebrated and recognized Bordeaux style wines. A truly bold and complex wine.
All Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties were hand harvested and hand sorted to insure only the ripest berries are used for this our Reserve style of
wine. The grapes were then gently destemmed and left as whole berries for open top fermentation in small batches.
During fermentation tanks were hand plunged four times a day at consistent intervals to further the extraction of colour and flavour. After fermentation, each varietal was separately pressed and transferred into a mixture of French and American oak
barrels to complete malolactic fermentation and continue the aging.
After the wines were racked from the barrels, Winemaker John Tummon selected the 80% Cabernet Sauvignon / 15% Cabernet Franc / 5% Merlot blend to be the best for
Kacaba’s traditional Bordeaux style wine.
A Derived from a combination of the words “Merit” and “Heritage”, a celebration of classic Bordeaux varietals. Thick and velvety with strong notes of chocolate, espresso and brambly blackberry.
Enjoy this wine own its own or match with beef tenderloin or anything BBQ.
