Overview

The 2014 season was generally warm which allowed the grapes to ripen well and develop bold, strong flavours. A soft and smooth Barossa Merlot classically made with some extended skin contact to soften the palate. This wine matured in older American oak barrels for 15 months to allow the fruit aromas to develop and the tannins to naturally soften.
