To produce Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Deep Woods Estate all of the constituent vineyard parcels were fermented separately, using a variety of techniques. The individual parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Deep Woods Estate were matured for 12 months in 30% new and 70% seasoned French oak barriques. From these parcels, they have strived to blend a wine that has great depth and intensity of fruit and speaks strongly of the premium Cabernet program at Deep Woods Estate.
The Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Deep Woods Esate has been crafted utilising fruit sourced from three separate blocks on the Yallingup Hills estate: Blocks 3 and 4, two premium blocks of 25-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines and Block 5 Merlot; the latter block being planted in 1987. A small amount of Cabernet and Malbec from the neighbouring property of Abbey Vale, also in the heart of the Yallingup sub-region
