Wine and Winery Information

AMELIA PARK TRELLIS CABERNET MERLOT 2017

Vineyards
The Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River is predominantly sourced for its consistency in producing rich fruit flavours and a small percentage is sourced from the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River, located further south, providing subtle and elegant aromatics and fine tannins.

Season
As with every vintage, challenges arise from mother nature. Difficult weather conditions during the ripening period were overcome with lots of hard work and attention in the vineyards to ensure pristine fruit was delivered to the winery. A slow start to vintage, 3-4 weeks later than the previous few years, has meant a later finish which finally ended for us the first week of May. Due to the slow and extended ripening period we have seen some beautifully balances wines. The Whites are light and fresh with great natural acidity. Overall, we are extremely happy with the wines from the 2017 vintage. They all have great balance and elegance.

Winemaking
A considerable number of parcels go into making this Cabernet Merlot blend. A number of picks occur starting in the northern areas of Margaret River and working our way south over a couple of months. Each parcel is machine harvested during the cool of the night and transferred to static fermenters for a controlled and cool primary fermentation. After primary ferment each parcel is carefully pressed off. These parcels are sent to a French oak barrels for secondary ferment and maturation.

Tasting Notes
Classic red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, made in an approachable drink now style. The nose is vibrant with lovely ripe berry fruit characters. The palate is soft, juicy and lingering.
