Merlot 2020

Winemaking Notes

Warm and dry conditions were the
highlight of March and April. This Merlot parcel is from a site in Northern Margaret River. The vineyards are on sandy loam and ironstone soils, which enhance the dark fruit flavours. The wine was pressed off skins and matured using French oak for 12-15 months

Nose

Lifted aromas of cherries and satsuma, vanilla and milk chocolate notes, with a hint of thyme

Palate

Dark plum palate with herbal notes. Integrated cedar, mocha and vanilla oak characters, are complemented by structured, ripe tannins on the finish.

Food Pairing

Slow cooked lamb ragu fettuccini with garlic, silverbeet and rosemary.

Allergens

Contains Sulphites. Fined with the aid of fish and skim milk products. Traces may remain.
