The 2011 Merlot was sourced from high on the eastern edge of the Barossa Valley off our Angus Brae and Three Springs vineyards. Here, sheltered hillsides and cooling afternoon gully winds coming down from Eden Valley, temper the warm Barossa sunshine and ensure conditions are ideal for ripening Merlot.

Harvested in the cool of the early hours,the fruit is crushed to traditional open top fermenters where a combination of soft handling techniques are used to try and obtain a balance between the plush round textural qualities so often associated with Merlot and some interest and structure from work on the soft tannins.

Winery Tasting Notes


Deep cherry red.


Fresh and focused with aromas of dark plums and fresh cherries supported by secondary notes of marzipan and pastry in the background.


A soft, fleshy attack on the front palate show cases some further hints of plums and intense fruit. This is followed by some lifted lightness on the palate weight and both combine to provide a soft, textural feel to the wine. A fine tannin framework then kicks in keeping it all in place and focused.


Drink to 2021.
