MENU's Wine of the Week. Catherine Marshall Peter's Vision 2015

The wine everyone raved about at Catherine Marshall's Ellerman House tasting. It has been nominated for 5 stars in this year’s Platter Guide. Announcements will be at the Platter launch on the 4th of November. Peter's Vision 2015; a blend of 87% Merlot (an Italian clone) from Shannon and 13% Cabernet Franc (a French clone)
From Elgin, on the left hand side of the N2. Berries were hand sorted. Lead pencils, rhubarb, mulberries, cherries, savoury and herbal. On the palate, layers and layers of rich, ripe red and black fruit, elegance, wood and soft chalky tannins and some caramel, with plums in brandy enrobed in chocolate on the end. A WOW wine. This is dedicated to Pete Oxenham, Cathy's late partner, son Jonathan's (Jonno) dad who, sadly, died of cancer
