Murdoch Hill 2018 MH Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot is a red wine blend made up of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Syrah. This wine comes from Adelaide Hills, Australia. The wine has a bright, supple, and varietally correct taste. It has flavors of quandong (a red native peach), red currant, and plum. There are notes of green bell pepper and strawberry acacia. The wine is matured in older French barriques for 10 months before bottling.
The Murdoch Hill vineyard is located in Adelaide Hills in a valley 420 m in elevation. The cabernet sauvignon and syrah selected for these wines are sourced from a predominantly east-facing slope producing fruit of more finesse by avoiding the harsh afternoon sun. The soil is mainly sandy loam over medium clay subsoil, with varying levels of ironstone, quartz, and schist rock.
