Second Nature - Cabernet Shiraz Merlot 2011


Brand: Dowie Doole

Title: CSM Dozen

The ancient volcanic soils and stable maritime climate of McLaren Vale are renowned for producing world leading and naturally full bodied Cabernet, Shiraz and Merlot wines.

For this wine, distinctive parcels of each variety were carefully selected from our own established vines through the region.  The wine was made to a classical McLaren Vale style by combining these traditional varieties, creating a bold and rich red wine, reflecting our passion for this very special place.



Colour: Rich, deep crimson with crimson hue
Nose: A beautiful Cabernet bouquet of blackcurrant and mint with dark berried, spicy Shiraz and soft red fruits from the Merlot.
Palate: The palate is soft and juicy, exhibiting flavours of blackcurrant, blackberry and plum with a touch of nutmeg spice. The tannins are fine, long and soft making it ideal for early drinking or short term aging.
