2020 Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot


Fondly known as ‘The Bordeaux Blend’ McLeish Estate 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is a unique blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon  and 20% Merlot. The blend exhibits vibrant currants and cranberry aromas. Rich layered, black cherry fruit with underlying earthy, cedar and leafy herbs completes the structure. Long and persistent, with a fine tannin and impeccable balance.


Our Merlot vineyard was established in 1985 with the vines being hand harvested. Cropping is undertaken- thus ensuring low yields and high quality and intensely flavored fruit. While the Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from old vines with the vineyard soil quite typical of the Hunter Valley with a mixture of sandy loam and red volcanic clay .
