20013 Merlot

Price:
Quantity:
 

Made from 100% Merlot sourced from premium vineyards in the Fleurieu region of South Australia. After picking, the grapes were crushed and fermented with full skin contact under controlled conditions. After run off, the skins were pressed in a basket press. The pressings were then returned to the free run and the wine was aged in French oak barriques for 12 months prior to bottling.

This wine shows light, fresh, grassy characters on the nose and the front/middle palate, with the strength and full fruited persistence of the variety on the middle/end palate, giving the wine a long lingering finish that is definitely Merlot.

I recommend that whilst this wine can be enjoyed now, bottle aging for a minimum of two to three years will greatly enhance it.
