Trentham Estate’s River Retreat range of wines is based on an initiative dedicated to raising awareness of the wetlands of the Murray Darling Region.
89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot: deep red, purple in colour with aromas of dark berries and a hint of chocolate; full of flavour with great fruit sweetness balanced by ripe tannins and a little oak. A seamless blend, finishing soft and long.

2012 was a great vintage for Murray Darling, with mild and dry conditions throughout the growing season.
Harvested at ideal ripeness the grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for 7 days with regular pump-overs to extract colour and flavour. After pressing the wine was aged with select French oak before blending and bottling.
Every purchase of the River Retreat label results in a donation to the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group Ltd.
