Winery Tasting Notes

This is an expressive Merlot, showing a fascinating combination of ripe plums, cedar and spice aromas. An inviting perfume of cinnamon and clove blends with blue fruits to give an exotic journey. Bursting with plum, blackberry, briar and cedar, evolving to enticing savoury notes from the French oak. The lovely natural acidity combines well with the expressive fruit and tannins.

This wine is blended to be enjoyed now and will continue to evolve for five to seven years.

Try matching with char grilled Wrattonbully chops or veggie burgers with pomegranate ketchup.

These are premium red wines from exceptional vineyard sites where the winemaking philosophy is to let the terroir speak for itself - and it does. The elements of soil and climate at Smith & Hooper have transformed the noble varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon into wines of finesse and distinction.
