Winery/Brand: Lewison Red Centre


The nose shows sour cherry, blackberry, earthy and forest floor aromas with a subtle hint of cedary oak. The wine shows flavours consistent with the nose but also showing cherry and spice flavours derived from the Merlot component of the wine. The wine is round, full and soft as is expected of a blend of these two classic grape varieties. The use of oak complements the flavours of this wine, which last to provide a long and smooth and earthy finish. Drink within 3 years with red meats or game.



The Story

The already cool grapes were crushed and further chilled to allow several days of cold maceration in order to add complexity and accentuate the fruitiness of the wine. Fermentation was conducted in temperature-controlled vessels using yeast strains selected to highlight the varietal character of the Cabernet and Merlot grapes.
