Dinny's Block 2013

From an outstanding vintage, this Cabernet franc, Merlot, Cabernet blend is gorgeously ripe with piercing red berry flavours supported by hints of mint and earth. Elegant and supple, it finishes with firm chewy tannin.

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 'vineyard 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.
