PICARDY Merlimont Cabernet Cabernet Franc Merlot, Pemberton 2017

<h2>Picardy Merlimont Pemberton Cabernet Cabernet Franc Merlot</h2> <p>While Cabernet Sauvignon can sometimes be difficult to ripen in Pemberton's cool climate, the region has shown that both Cabernet Franc and Merlot can do well here and Picardy's right bank inspired blend of 52% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Cabernet Franc (and which is only made when conditions allow) is a gorgeous, medium-bodied yet structured wine.</p> <p>Winemaker Dan Pannell (son of founders Bill and Sandra) likes to co-ferment the Cabernet Franc either with the Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon to enhance integration. The wine is hand plunged three times a day during fermentation before being matured in new and old barriques for 12 months.

Region Pemberton

John Gladstones, an influential agricultural scientist who played a key role in vineyard establishment in Western Australia, recommended Pemberton as a viable grape region in 1977, leading to the first experimental plantings. However it was not until 1982 that the first commercial vineyards were established. Pemberton is found southeast of Margaret River in the lower south-western portion of Western Australia. The region enjoys a maritime climate with most vineyards anchored on gravelly sand and loam, at an altitude up to 200 metres above sea level. Pemberton is a region dotted with small family run boutique wineries, however 85% of the region is still bushland, forested with local karri trees. Chardonnay is one of Pemberton’s most successful varieties often made in a full-bodied generous style although Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon also thrive in the region.
