This Blaxland Estate Cabernet Merlot 2012 pours a bright red in colour, with the aroma of dark fruits and ripe plums. To the taste it opens with a rich mix of blackcurrants and damson, more heavily bodied than the nose would indicate. A full rounded flavour of fruit, it leaves with a short lingering berry taste.
Like a lot of good wines, this need to be drunk at room temperature, 18C, in order for the fruit flavours to really reveal themselves. That is not always easy if coming from a cold kitchen shelf, but it really is worth trying to sort the temperature to really enjoy the wine.
Noted as one of the first settlers to plant grapes for wine growing purposes, Gregory Blaxland was the first person to export Australian wine to England in 1822.
In just one year on shelf, Blaxland Estate has become a top 20 UK Australian wine brand, which is available exclusively at Tesco.
Blaxland Estate Cabernet Merlot 2012 is just one of many from the Blaxland Estate, all of which seem value for money, and the reviews are al on here.
