Penthouse Merlot 2013 (12 x 750mL) Paso Robles, California

Vintage Conditions

Weather conditions were mild during summer, with a few short periods of hot weather. Generally, conditions during the majority of the ripening period were ideal, with mild day time temperatures and cold nights, all conducive to excellent flavour development and the retention of natural acidity in the fruit. A great vintage!

Winemaking

Picked in the cool of the morning and open top fermented. Hand plunged 3-4 times a day to extract rich colour and a complex mid-palate. Matured for 18 months in a combination of French and American oak.

All wines are made in the vineyard.
