Winemaking

Colour: Medium brick-red, cherry.

This wine is a vibrant varietal Barossa Valley Merlot which displays typical red currant and savoury spice flavours. Overall it is medium bodied with well-defined tannins and an attractive fleshy mid-palate.

Traditional on-skin fermentation for 7 days at slightly cooler temperatures, ensured the retention of fine delicate flavours from the Merlot grape.

Following pressing, malolactic fermentation and clarification, the wine was matured for 11 months in older French oak barrels. The wine was bottled in July 2019. Further bottle ageing will reward you with complex mature flavours.
