Golden Mile Bench
A blend of estate grown Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc from Arise and Stan's Bench
Directly pressed following minimal skin contact and then fermented for one month in stainless steel tanks.
Initial investigation shows lively aromas of ripe strawberries, lychees and fuzzy summer peach. Subsequent random sampling reveals a juicy, mouthwatering palate with flavours of strawberries and cream with subtle rhubarb notes. The long and exuberant finish suggests another glass should be poured. For research, of course.
