Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are a very often blended together – they work together to produce a more complex wine. The richness of the Cabernet provides the structure for the wine, while the Merlot provides a soft, suppleness to round out the palate.

Balgownie’s Black Label Cabernet Merlot has weight combined with a lovely depth of flavour and complexity. The wine has black currant, raisins, pepper and spice flavours balanced by the soft, plum roundness of the Merlot and a touch of oak.

This is a very versatile wine that is ideal for a barbecue or any roast dishes such as lamb or beef.

This superb site of alluvial soil has major plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and shiraz with smaller amounts of pinot noir, chardonnay, merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot, viognier and sangiovese. Balgownie Estate’s Yarra Valley vineyards were planted in 2002 to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
