This was an outstanding vintage for premium red wines. A long slow ripening period was prevalent, characterized by an initial dryness, yet moderate temperatures. This culminated in the typical January heat wave.
Intense ruby red center with a bright brick red edge.
Plums and ripe blackberry flavours dominate a rich full nose with nuances of gentle wood maturation.
Sweet ripe fruits, blackberries and red berries on entry support the overall palate of fruit and balanced acidity. All this combines into depth on the mouth and an appreciation of this super smooth elegant wine. The fruit tannins are ripe, rich and full offering a satisfying width to the mid-palate.The wine ends with a long finish of sweet fruit.WINEMAKER’S NOTES
Matured for 18 months in a variety of French oak barrels. Our merlot is divided into 3 distinct zones according to soil type and ripening characteristics. These were picked, sorted and fermented and matured separately until an ideal combination was blended to produce this balance, expressing and fruit driven wine.
This wine will mature well and improve with bottle ageing over the next couple of years. Perfect for a wide variety of foods – poultry, red meats, pork, salads, steaks and medium strength cheeses.
