About: Our finest release to date and a more “serious” wine than most would expect for an Australian Merlot at this price.
Viticulture: In 2016 we enjoyed lovely warm days and cool night time temperatures which allowed the vines to ripen evenly whilst maintaining excellent structure.
Wine making: Cold soaked pre-ferment, 11 day fermentation, barrel aged in used French hogsheads and barriques.
Tasting Notes: Generous, powerful and concentrated palate with lashings of rich, ripe, dark fruit flavours. There’s a core of beautiful forest fruits and dark chocolate on the mid palate. Charmingly balanced, the finish is velvety and smooth.
