The Details

Tasting Note 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.
Best Enjoyed With Try with chargrilled Wrattonbully lamb chops or veggie burgers with pomegranate molasses.
Treatment The art in Merlot winemaking is avoiding over-extraction of tannins from the fruit and seeds. Our wines are made in static fermenters and we continually taste the developing wine and press the skins when there is structure and weight without tannic harshness. In the pursuit of soft tannins, we are judicious in our oak selection and moderate with its use.
