The 2014 growing season was consistent and long overall. Warm summer temperatures during the day kept the acids high while still bringing the fruit to optimal maturity. The 2014 Victorian Claret is a complex blend of Guenoc's award winning wines.
It possesses fragrant notes of black cherry jam, black currant, clove spice, Earl Gray tea, and hints of oak. Well-rounded, elegant tannins on the palate bring bright acidity with hints of cherry, red raspberry and blueberry followed by a long chocolaty finish.
Blend: 70% Merlot, 15% Petite Sirah, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
