Winery Tasting Notes

Colour - Garnet Red

Aroma -Dark chocolates, herbaceous, and sweet spices of star anise and cinnamon

Palate - Rich nicely ripened cherries with medium weight and extract. The wine finishes smoothly with integrated spicy oak and gentle soft tannins. With a lot of dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee, it tastes a lot like a tiramisu

Cellaring Potential - Norfolk Rise Estate Merlot 2016 can be cellared till 2020

Food Matching - Slow cooked beef ribs or a wild mushroom risotto.

Winemaking: Picked off our 100% estate vineyards in March. The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed into stainless steel fermenters. It then had a quick, cool ferment using Bordeaux yeasts and was extracted at a moderate rate; too achieve this medium bodied, mocha style wine.
