Merlot 2017, Coonawarra SA
Intense aromas of blood plum and spice. Succulent raspberry and blackberry and silky smooth tannin.
NOSE - Brooding aromas of blood plum and dark spices, with some raspberry, violets and subtle vanillin oak.
PALATE - Juicy and moreish, with some succulent acid. Raspberries, blackberries and fleshy blood plum flavours with some peppery spice on a long finish. Smooth, integrated tannins with hints of charred, vanillin oak help this wine deliver in a big way that still carries the agreeable seamlessness expected of Merlot. Decant for at least 15 mins, ideally 30 mins. This wine definitely benefits from some breathing time, opening up the bouquet and harmonising the palate.
NOTES - Fruit sourced from a single vineyard. The wine was matured in a mix of second use French barriques (225 litre) and hogsheads (300 litre) oak barrels for 22 months prior to bottling. With smooth tannins and a long finish this Merlot is an excellent example of the varietal, and is versatile enough to accompany many dishes. This wine will further develop with careful cellaring over 2-5 years, or is ready to drink now.
VEGAN FRIENDLY - Like all of our wines, no animal products were used in the making of this wine.
SPECS - Central Coonawarra, 13% Alc/vol, 7.7 Standard drinks, Pres. 220 added, 750ml
