The 2007 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red is the first release of our Bordeaux style red
blend. The 2007 2Bench Red is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Cabernet
Franc, 29% Merlot. The Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in 2 tonne open top
fermenters that were punched down twice daily; the Cabernet Franc and Merlot
fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation was complete Sandra decided
the percentage of each varietal that would make up the Oldfield Series 2Bench Red
by choosing the lots with the best tannin and fruit structure. Blending occurred
before going into barrel where is aged for 18 months in new to two year old French
oak barrels. This wine spent 15 months in bottle before release.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Both complex and subtle this wine has aromas of blackberry, cassis, herbs with notes of oak and cedar. On the palate the aromas carry through and are joined by dark chocolate and black plum flavours.
Ratings
*91+ points “This wine is very well balanced and chalk-full of character... The tannins are round and well integrated, framing the fruit flavours nicely. A New World wine in style and character of the feminine variety. It’s a beautiful wine. ” Icon Wines, September 2010 *91 points “Very elegant with long lines of plummy richness and depth. There are enticing notes of tobacco, pepper and cassis in a lovely melange and lengthy finish. ” Natalie MacLean, NatalieMacLean.com, October 2010 *91 points “...aromas of sweet black raspberries and cherries with hints of blueberry, tobacco, sweet spices and mocha. The palate is bright, juicy fruit is layered with earth, minerals, bittersweet cocoa and dark coffee. It is smooth and very dry with fine, firm tannins.” The Wine Diva, winescores.ca, October 2010
