Basedow's "B3" Barossa Cabernet Merlot 2010 (12 x 750mL) Barossa

Description:

After a dry 2009 vintage, the Barossa received its best winter rains since 2005, which replenished soil profiles. The growing season started out cool and wet which meant slow vine growth during September and early October. This was followed by warm to hot weather from late October and November, which stimulated strong vine growth and provided healthy vine canopies. A seven day burst of unseasonal hot weather in early November during flowering, resulted in reduced fruit set in some vineyards and varieties, but caused no damaging effects on the vines health. Average temperatures were experienced through December and January with no extended periods of very hot weather. Weather conditions through the ripening months of February and March were ideal with warm sunny days and relatively cool nights. The vintage was typically dry and Mediterranean. As a result both reds and whites display purity of aroma and flavour and great varietal expression.

The fruit comes from several different vineyards situated on the Barossa Valley floor. The vineyards range from 15 to 30 years old and yield on average 6t/acre

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

This wine exhibits richness of raspberry, new leather, cigar box and cedar. The nose is further accentuated with lifted plums dusted with cinnamon, and underlying mint chocolate. The palate is lusciously abundant with dark berries layered with vanilla and chocolate and laced with star anise which provides exceptional length and mouth feel. A medium bodied wine with the palate showing links to the ‘Old World’ in profile. Fruit richness, with soft but firm approachable tannins. Good oak balance.

Winery Profile

The Basedow family name is steeped in tradition within the Barossa Valley, home to the oldest wine growing appellation in Australia.

With a family lineage spanning 118 years and tracing back to one of the founding wine families of the Barossa, the 5th generation Basedow’s, brothers – Peter, Michael and Richard – proudly continue their family craft of winemaking in the Barossa.

After a long and eventful period, in 2014 the Basedow brother’s acquired the BASEDOW’S brand and became the rightful custodians of their name. The journey has been long but rewarding.
