Dinny's Block 2015

A classic vintage for this Cabernet franc, Merlot, Cabernet blend, showing typically fragrant raspberry and blackcurrant fruit with hints of mint and earth. Medium bodied and fine but structured, it will cellar well.

When our founder, Dinny Killen, originally planted Merlot vines in 1988, the planting material actually contained more Cabernet franc than Merlot, and a small number of Cabernet sauvignon vines were thrown in for good measure. The resulting 'field blend' produces lovely fragrant wines, with a little leafy complexity in cooler years, and darker berry fruit in the warmer years. The wine was originally labelled 'Merlot' and then 'Cabernet franc Merlot' and now simply 'Dinny's Block' but the blend has remained the same.
