Essentially the Dragonfly Cabernet Merlot is an expression of the deep dark fruit characters we attain from the Ferguson region, rich and smooth with lashings of chocolate. Winemaking technique enhances the aromatic and flavour profile of the varieties whilst maintaining a long fine tannin structure.

Tasting Notes
Punchy blackberry fruit, anise, ripe black plums and bay leaf aromas. A palate of depth and weight. A soft core of primary fruits, blackcurrant and plum, underpinned by gentle oak and a fine tannin finish.

Vineyard Notes
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced predominately from the Blinman block which was planted in 1998. Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam over red and yellow friable clay with slight westerly aspects at elevations of 220 to 250m above sea level.
Production Notes
The 2016 vintage begun with a hot Spring, likely due to a strong El NiƱo influence, with October, November and December considerably warmer than the previous season. The repercussions were good with a nice even flowering, providing consistency of fruit through the blocks. Rolling on to January, the Geographe region received 74mm over four days of rain on January 18, proving a test for most Vineyards, however the fruit remained pristine and fresh.
