This exceptional vintage, was due to a cool summer and dry moderate autumn providing the ideal conditions for producing excellent Merlot with great varietal character. For our inaugural Adelaide Hills Merlot we selected the best rows of fruit from a premium vineyard near Montara/Kuitpo area, which has produced outstanding flavours.
