Product Description
Details

Produced by Celler Avgvustvs Forvm, Augustus Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is made from a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot. Both varieties come from vineyards planted not far from the Mediterranean sea, following the old Via Augusta, Spain's most important Roman road.

Separately harvested and vinified, after a 13 day skin maceration both musts were fermented. Then, the Merlot was aged for 11 to 17 months, and the Cab. Sauvignon was aged for 18 months, both of them in 300-litre French oak barrels.

After that, this Spanish red wine from Penedès was gently clarified and delicately filtered.

Finally, Augustus Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2018 was aged for a further 12 months before its commercial release.

Limited production.

Nose

This bold organic red wine is intensely aromatic, with aromas of ripe red fruit, alongside hints of spices, flowers, menthol and balsam. This blend of Cab. Sauvignon and Merlot shows an excellent balance.

Palate

Intense notes of meaty red and black fruit, combined with some lactic and spicy aromas, touches of liquorice and some earthy and toasted remembrances. Thiswine from the Avgvtvs Forum winery has a very good acidity, some ripe tannins and a long, fruity finish.

Our personal opinion

The perfect companion of red meat dishes, Augustus Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2018 is both complex and joyously drinkable.
