Vineyards: Sourced from sustainable vineyards from around Australia.
Winemaking: Fully de-stemmed before fermentation in a mix of open and closed tanks. The wine was primarily vinified without the influence of oak for maximum fruit expression before blending with a component aged in three and four year old French oak.
Vintage 2021: If 2020 was all about the heat, then 2021 will be remembered as the wet season. In many parts of Australia, it was unseasonably wet in winter, but not at critical times to do damage nor impact the resultant ripeness of the grapes. A cool and dry summer meant even ripening was achieved between dry and rainy spells and the ensuing fruit quality was excellent and for once yields were up making for a bumper harvest in 2021.
Tasting Note: A medium-bodied Merlot that is a genuine crowd-pleaser. Bright berry fruit aromas complemented by hints of plum, chocolate and toasty oak. The palate delivers all the smoothness associated with the variety with a nicely concentrated finish. Pair with some gourmet sausages.
