Mr Barval Cabernet Merlot 2016


This wine looks set to not only continue the story of the 2015 Cabernet Merlot, but to take it on to greater heights. A restrained yet complex nose displaying a wonderful mix of cassis, black berry, currant, and plum, hints of spicey oak and a typically delicate Margaret River savoury dried kelp note. Medium to full bodied with plenty of acid to lift the palate and balance the autumn fruit bowl of dark and red berries and fruits. The youthful tannins are nutty, fine and dry and complete the well structured palate to perfection. This wine is already showing great depth and complexity in youth and I feel it has great potential to age and develop for at least 15 years.

Winery Profile:
The philosophy behind MR BARVAL wines and driving decisions for them is a very classical and traditional one. They focused on the classic varieties of Margaret River – Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Aiming to produce the wines in a very traditional, old world manner to allow for their own individual voices to be heard most clearly, not to be the bearers of a heavy winery fingerprint. Purity of fruit, balance, elegance and delicacy. These are all focus points for the production.

Doing everything possible to achieve fruit quality at harvest as close to perfection as possible is the cornerstone of our fine wines. We work with leading growers located on favourable vineyard sites and do everything we can to ensure the fruit that arrives at the winery is in optimum condition.
