The Riddle

Cabernet Merlot

Deep Ruby/Purple in colour with intense, rich, dark berry and vanilla pod aromas with a hint of clove spice. Very good fruit intensity of dark plum and cassis on the palate, with well integrated oak. The wine has soft velvety tannins and a good length.

  • Tasting Notes

Picking at optimum maturity has resulted in wines which display vibrant bright colours with ripe flavour profiles, rounded flavoursome.

Food Pairing

Try with barbecued venison or lamb with roasted or grilled vegetables or enjoy it simply on its own.

From the Winemaker

A very good vintage for red wines, resulting from a late, dry and mild to warm summer which provided the ideal conditions for growing and ripening the grapes.
