Wrattonbully is one of Australia’s most exciting viticultural discoveries of recent times. Blessed with the celebrated soil profile of Terra Rossa over limestone, the region is rapidly establishing a high class reputation for wines of depth and elegance.
In our vineyards in Wrattonbully we have learnt a great deal on how to grow the Merlot grapevine. The canes of Merlot have a tendency to roll over so we now trellis them with a catching wire. This gives the vine structure, stability and allows the grapes to receive dappled light rather than full sun.

Winery Tasting Notes
The bouquet is reminiscent of briar and cedar infused with rhurbarb, backed by spicy clove and tobacco leaf bass notes.
The palate is plush and full flavoured with aromatic red berries and black currant flavours apparent. The talc-like tannins give a lingering smooth finish.
Will cellar up to six years .
best paired with Asian spiced pork belly.
