Select Merlot 2020

A small crop, dry-land grownon a North East facing block, ensures fruit concentration rarely found.

Gentle Old World wine making with minimal interference delivers a wine that is well integrated.

Maturation in old French oak and some (10%) new, enhances rather than dominates.

Luscious ripe black cherry mouth feel is matched with finefruit tannins.  A hint of raspberry acidity teases the palate, completing a wonderful Merlot.

Drink now or keep trying for another 10 years.

Select Merlot 2020

750 Milliliters
  • A small crop from these unirrigated vines grown on a North- East facing hill, giving intense fruit flavours.

    A classic cool-climate Merlot with red/blackcurrant bouquet.  On airing, the tight structure slowly reveals more raspberry and plum on the palate with those wonderful preserving fruit tannins that balance the wine.  A lift from the new French oak, 25%, completes the pleasure of another mouthful.  Unfiltered , following our minimal intervention philosophy.  Drink now or Cellar for 10years plus.
