Church road grand reserve wines are produced only in great vintages. The very best low-cropping vineyard blocks are targeted for selective hand-harvesting to yield wines with the greatest possible flavour, depth and concentration. In the winery these wines are made using small batch, traditional winemaking techniques that emphasise texture, structure and subtle complexity, while still letting the fruit shine through. One of the most challenging and exciting wine styles to produce. There is a synergy between cabernet sauvignon and merlot that when blended sensitively, produces arguably the most complete, complex, fragrant and satisfying style of red wine in the world. The warm meso-climates and light, stony soils give low crops of concentrated, full ripe, fragrant fruit that produces classically structured wines with power, elegance, fragrance and finesse.
