2014 Breaking Ground Claret
The English word for the red wines that come from Bordeaux in France has been used for a rarely produced special mix of the classic Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Only made in those rare vintages where we get ripe grapes, high natural acidity and lower alcohols. This combination makes a long fine ageing style of Cabernet Merlot that is uniquely medium bodied with long fine tannins and savoury notes. This is the style that only the great years of Bordeaux can produce because they don’t depend on big ripe fruit flavours. Picked from our 2 blocks and matured in new American and French oak before 3 years bottle age.
