One of the top single region wine companies in Australia, Annie's Lane is named after a Clare Valley resident who used to deliver lunch to vineyard workers. 2016 marked 20 years of the brand’s wines. It sources the finest fruit from Clare Valley’s 80 year old grapevines. The brand’s philosophy is to produce wines with little intervention in order to maximize natural fruit characteristics and intensity.
Crafted using a minimal intervention approach, Annie's Lane Cabernet Merlot is a delightful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes obtained from fertile vineyards in the Clare Valley wine region. This dry wine exudes a dark red colour as it is poured into glasses. The attractive bouquet exhibits lifted aromas of blackcurrants, dried plums, spearmint and herbs. These fragrances effortlessly make way for a rich and vibrant palate brimming with flavours of ripe brambly fruits and redcurrants, combined with subtle oak nuances. This generous palate is balanced by savoury tannins, ending the wine in a satisfying finish. Cellar this medium bodied wine for a medium to long term, for a more rewarding experience. Serve it with oregano and garlic marinated chargrilled lamb chops, or roasted spatchcock chicken and spring vegetables, to lift your meal.
