The award-winning 2018 Polish Hill River Cabernet Merlot is drinking beautifully. Packed with plum and spice, it’s velvety smooth with hints of blackcurrant. Our classic Polish Hill River Cabernet Merlot is a favourite with Pauletts regulars, delivering year on year consistency, leaning toward a classic French style. And let us say the ruby red 2018 vintage certainly lives up to its predecessors – it’s a cracker of a Clare Valley Regional Red!

Soft and rich, the 2018 Polish Hill River Cabernet Merlot pairs wonderfully with Coq au Vin, Mediterranean dishes and mature cheeses.
A wet winter and spring produced localised flooding in the Clare Valley in late September; this provided the region with plenty of subsurface moisture. Decent rains continued into vintage and, coupled with mild temperatures, contributed to excellent fruit and, in turn, wine quality.
