Tandem Cabernet Merlot 2019
Deep red with a cherry hue.
Lifted aromatics of violets, cherry, cassis, black tea and cardamon spice.
A generous and dense palate with flavours of forest fruits, dark chocolate, bay leaf and biltong, with hints of dusty oak and a fine tannin structure leading to a long, savoury finish.
Braised lamb and root vegetables.
2019 was a long, cool vintage. It started off with a cooler than average spring and summer and this followed through vintage. Canopy management and attention to detail were key to getting fruit ripe and avoiding disease. Yields were low across the board. The results have been punchy aromatic whites, fine natural acidity, spicy Shiraz, and more elegant Cabernets.Read Full Tasting Note
