Profile

The Reuben is a unique, handcrafted, five varietal blend from Paul and Kathy Drogemuller of Paracombe Wines.

2012 was a quality vintage. Fruit was harvested over several picks from mid to late March. This wine is made predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon - interestingly six clones all with individual characters. The blend of varieties used in The Reuben were grown at the Drogemuller’s vineyard along with their neighbouring specialist local family growers.

Following harvest and ferment, the wine was matured for 18 months in French Oak barriques and hogsheads. This wine’s intense colour has deep ruby tones with bright edges in the glass. The bouquet is highly aromatic with lifted aromas of poached rhubarb and plum, together with hints of delicate oak,   leatherwood and spicy licorice characters.

The palate is long and finely structured with stylish fruit driven flavours of fresh loganberries and raspberries interspersed with savoury and spicy notes.

The Reuben is a great food wine and complements many styles of food. Will reward with age and to be enjoyed for many years to come.
