The noble Blend

 

Traditionally Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot have been blended to produce what is known as the Bordeaux Blend.

This is due to the majority of Bordeaux red wine being a blend of Cabernet SaUvignon and Merlot.

The classification of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as ‘Noble’ grape varieties is due to centuries of wine (some great wine) being produced using ‘Noble’ grapes. The blending of these Noble grapes is to compliment the characteristics of each to produce a full flavoured wine .

A wine with a beginning, a middle and a finish on the palate is why we chose to blend. This wine will develop even more complexity over the coming years. Enjoy now or cellar and be rewarded.

Central Highlands

 

This wine is a combination of grape varieties sourced from vineyards around the Central Highlands of Victoria.

Three equal quantities of Cabernet, Shiraz and Merlot have gone into the making of this complex wine.

This wine was created at Cloud 9 Farm from the best quality grapes grown in the central highlands of Victoria. The combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot gives a complex fruit flavour. Well balanced tannin and acid levels with ripe fruit make this wine suitable for enjoying with a good steak.

The Next Generation

This wine is marking the transition of the next generation of Cloud 9 Farm.

The fruit flavour of this wine is coming through with balance and a clean finish. The colour is just a BLUSH of pink that came from a short period with the skins in contact with the juice .

The grapes are grown and made into a Rosé all on the farm at Pipers Creek.

RUBY

Our Special Edition Sparkling Red

 

Cabernet Sauvignon is rarely used in sparkling wine. You need ripe fruit for Cabernet and you need high acid levels for sparkling wine.

This vintage provided both of these essentials.

 A rare year indeed.

This wine is made for celebration. To be enjoyed on that special occasion with family and friends. Like at Christmas with rich foods such as turkey and ham.

Or 40 years of marriage... hence the name

The Panther

 

Cloud 9 Farm adjoins the Cobaw State Forrest where sightings have been recorded of the mysterious Black Panther.

This ink black wine is also mysterious as it is drinking well now but will reward those with patience to cellar for a number of years.

Once in a lifetime does a vintage of Shiraz fruit present itself in such a way as this wine's fruit did. Simply the best Shiraz produced at Cloud 9 Farm. Enjoy with friends... very good friends.
