Delivery Details

Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet Franc Merlot 2010 Red Wine 75cl is a very full bodied wine. It comes from Tapanappa's Whalebone Vineyard that is located on bright red terra rossa formed on limestone containing the bones of a 37 million year old whale. Cabernet Shiraz is the traditonal blend of great Australian red wines and the Whalebone Vineyard soil and climate provide a natural home for this blend.

The old Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines of the Whalebone Vineyard have responded magnificently. After a forty-year struggle the vine roots have penetrated the deeper limestone layers and are extracting a balance of moisture and nutrient to sustain a meagre crop of 2 tonnes/hectare. The vines have sufficient canopy and root system

to fully ripen the harvest relying only on natural rainfall.

The combination of the Merlot and Cabernet Franc has a synergy for which the wines of the “right bank” of Bordeaux have long been famed.

In a rare departure from the normal the Cabernet Franc is the dominant part of the blend, 58% and also dominates the aroma, flavour and tannin structure of the 2010 Tapanappa Merlot Cabernet Franc. The foundation of this wine is solidly Merlot and the superstructure ethereally Cabernet Franc.

2010 Tapanappa Merlot-Cabernet Franc is the product of a great warm vintage and “is a pure expression of the unique terroir of the Whalebone Vineyard.”

Bottled in February 2012 and only 400 dozen grown and made.
