Estate Range

Estate 2019 Merlot

COLOUR

Dark ruby red red of good intensity with a purple cherry colour and slow legs on the swirl. 

NOSE

Clean and complex developed aromas of Blueberry jam and plum, fig and a subtle forest floor nuance.

PALATE

Clean developing full bodied flavours of fresh blackberry and warm toasty damson. A soft tannin impression across the palate gives way to a satisfying length of cherry toast and sweet coffee bean on the finish.

WINEMAKING

The fruit is harvested from two clones of mature merlot vines in section A & D on the estate vineyard. Traditional vinification techniques applied with minimal intervention to preserve its regional identity.

FOOD PAIRING

Roast beef or slow cooked lamb shanks with potatoes.

VINTAGE NOTES

Cool conditions in early spring enabled a subsequent long growing season. A
warm dry summer subsided into ideal cooler autumn conditions prior to
harvest.
