Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep ruby red

Aroma

Standout aromas of dark berry and cherry are the feature of this wine, that flows through to the palate.

Palate

This Merlot is a smooth red wine with ripe fruit flavours of cherry and plum. It is a well balanced wine with a full mouthfilling finish and a very slight vanilla oak impression.

Food Matching

An ideal partner for succulent red meat dishes, particularly herb crusted roast rack of lamb.

Winemaking Notes

For this wine we individually sourced parcels of fruit from our irrigated and dry farmed vineyards. These grapes were picked at optimal ripeness in order to maximise the wonderful plum and cherry flavours. After crushing, the wine was fermented at cool temperatures, fined and then put through secondary malolactic fermentation. This enables a softer finish to the wine and allows the fruit flavours to fill out the mouth.
