Long Yarn 2017 McLaren Vale Cabernet Merlot by Loom Wine
Long Yarn Cabernet Merlot

2017

Tasting Note

Rich black fruits coat the palate. Waves of cassis, black cherry, plum and chocolate before a lick of spice. The palate is long and pronounced. Primary fruits lead before secondary mineral, vanilla tones creep in and tie the wine together nicely.

Alcohol: 14% vol.

Best Drinking: Patience needed – approachable now but has 10 years of life left

Vineyard & Winemaking

92% Cabernet and 8% Merlot fruit sourced from our own Loom Vineyard in the McLaren Vale region. Fermentation was carried out on skins with two pump-overs daily to ensure good extraction. Following fermentation, the wine went into neutral French and American oak for 16 months, with a small portion put in new French oak to impart further flavour and complexity.
