2018 7TH GENERATION MERLOT
THIS WINE IS A VIBRANT BAROSSA VALLEY MERLOT WHICH DISPLAYS TYPICAL RED CURRANT AND SAVOURY SPICE FLAVOURS.
Grapes for this wine are grown on our Estate on Golflinks Road in Rowland Flat from a single vineyard. A small parcel of highly flavoured fruit from this vineyard was earmarked and kept separate. Grapes were harvested on 19 March 2018.
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.
Overall it is medium bodied with well-defined tannins and an attractive fleshy mid-palate.
