Merlot 2017

Dark chocolate and plum characters on the nose with rich and savoury characters combined with firm tannins will see this wine integrate beautifully with age.


Winter typical with very cool temperatures, heavy rainfall, some frost.  Mild weather in early spring. Warm dry summer, stable and mild leading up to harvest.


Very good growing season. Soil sustainability initiatives and some late irrigation. Outstanding fruit quality, leaf thickness, shoot growth and balance in crop load. Harvest went smoothly. 9/10
