Compiled and written by Colin Moss, Wine Educator and Consultant Sommelier.

The Triple Blend strives for balance and complexity through blending, rather than expressing pure varietal character. The blend combines the bold and rich fruit of Cabernet Sauvignon, the spice and pepper of Shiraz, and the velvet texture of Merlot.

Whilst Rosnay vineyards include 8 hectares of Shiraz, and 4 hectares of Cabernet, only 2 hectares of Merlot are grown, making it the limiting factor in the amount of Triple Blend produced each year. No varietal Merlot has been bottled so far.

As in all the Rosnay wines, the Triple Blend is made with minimal intervention, very low sulfur and minimal oak. Bottled under screw cap (the first of the Rosnay reds to move over), it is bold and youthful, and whilst drinking well now it still benefits from breathing before serving.

Compared to past vintages we believe the 2008 is similar to the 2003 and 2005 vintages, with more solid body but still some clean, firm tannins with soft edges and plenty of fruit.
