Overview

The grapes for this 2013 Merlot were sourced from high on the eastern edge of the Barossa Valley off the 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.

The result is a very soft and supple Merlot with rich dark berry aromas, and a fine tannic structure. A crowd-pleaser.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep ruby.

Aroma

Intense lifted aromas of dark plums dominate and are supported by fresh hints of fresh cherries and dark chocolate.

Palate

The flavours of plums and dark berry fruit evident on the nose are clearly also evident on the palate, but here they are balanced by a subtle fine tannin framework around the edges which provides a clear path of travel to the wine. A hint of spice appears to provide some added interest as the soft dark fruit rolls through to the finish.
