Cracka ReviewThe Clare Valley has a rich history of red wines and Annie’s Lane remains one of the most well known brands of the region. Legend goes Annie got her horse and cart bogged in the mud of the lane as she was returning from the vineyards. This is well-structured stuff thanks to just the right quota of Cabernet and Merlot with plush fruit and a great tannin structure. Showing aromas of plum and blackcurrant before a palate that is rich in currant fruit and drying tannins.
The Annie's Lane Cabernet Merlot is a great example of this traditional red blend.
Cabernet Sauvignon provides the structure to this wine while Merlot's fleshy plum fruit
fills out the mid-palate.
Deep red in colour, with lifted aromas of dried plums and blackcurrants. The palate is rich and generous, displaying varietal Cabernet and Merlot characters including redcurrants and ripe brambly fruit balanced by subtle oak influence. This medium bodied Cabernet Merlot finishes with chalky tannins.
