Craigie Knowe 2019 Cabernet Merlot


The East Coast of Tasmania is among the warmer regions of the island state and vineyards here are able to get ripe red varieties that might struggle elsewhere on the island. Craigie Knowe is a proven performer with vines that were planted over 40 years ago. This is a blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot that offers extremely good drinking and surprising intensity. It has plenty of flavour and structure but is laid-back and easy to enjoy. Hand plunged twice daily for nine days, the wine was then transferred to French oak barriques and matured in barrel for 12 months prior to blending and finishing for bottling. Dark fruits, vanilla and herbs and spices come together beautifully. $35.
