George Wyndham `Bin 888` Cabernet Merlot 2017 (6 x 750mL), SE AUS

Description:

Selected Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot parcels of fruit were chosen to complement each other for this wine, with Cabernet Sauvignon selected on the basis of structure and length, Merlot to give fruit weight and softness across the mid palate. Fermentation took place for between 10 – 14 days with temperatures ranging from 18 - 28°C. During fermentation, regular assessment of colour and tannin extraction ensured parcels were soft and fruit has driven in style. Maturation of selected batches of the wines in older French oak hogsheads for up to 12 months added approachability and softness to the wines prior to blending.

History

George Wyndham is one of the founding fathers of the Australian wine industry having planted Australia's first commercial Shiraz vineyard in 1830. His innovative spirit is a proud legacy that endures to this day at Wyndham Estate. Wyndham Estate is the birthplace of Australian Shiraz -- it is the home of George Wyndham's original estate.

Winemaker Nigel Dolan

Dolan is wine industry royalty of a kind; he has shaped palates of the globe and forged new paths for Australian wine with both winemaking and wine judging roles interwoven into his long career. Pivotal in his award winning career have been the two Jimmy Watson trophy wins in 1992 and 2003.

He was also named the 2009 Australian Winemaker of the Year by Winestate magazine, and has previously been named South Australian Red Winemaker of the Year, Barossa Wine Maker of the Year and been a finalist in the QANTAS Winemaker of the Year. In 2002, he earned the auspicious rank of "Baron of the Barossa".Throughout his career, Dolan has upheld a simple overriding philosophy of quality. Quality can take on many different guises and levels. He cites expressiveness, not just in winemaking, but expression of variety, vineyard, and region is the key to quality.
