A Rodda Cuvee de Chez 2018 (6 x 750ml)

(Offer price - $34 per bottle in a straight six-pack)
Adrian believes when it comes to Bordeaux varieties, the sum is greater than its parts. Cabernet Sauvignon provides the tannin, length and structural backbone, Merlot contributes 'the fuzzy ball of fruit' in the mid-palate, Cabernet Franc provides fragrant red fruits and savouriness. Petit Verdot adds perfume and acid line and Malbec gives dark fruits and overall roundness to the finish. 

Cabernet Sauvignon was crushed and de-stemmed whereas the other four varieties incorporated more whole berries. During fermentation, the timing and combination of pump-overs, "rack and returns", pigeage and plunging was to preserve aromatics and perfume yet extract adequate tannins for structure and length, depending on the variety. Post-fermentation, the Cabernet Sauvignon was held on skins for a further 15 days than the other varieties. All wines were pressed to French oak barriques (25% new) for a 15 month elevage. 

The 2018 Cuvée de Chez consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (58%), Merlot (18%), Petit Verdot (9%), Cabernet Franc (8%) and Malbec (7%).
