This intriguing cool climate single vineyard Merlot has a complex nose of blueberries, blackcurrant, brioche and cinnamon. A spicy palate with vanilla and sweet fruits is followed by a super smooth and satisfying finish. A rare single offering of this understated variety.

Tasting Notes
Deep magenta red with a vibrant nose of blueberry, blackcurrent, spice and brioche. Stone-fruits, mulberry and cinnamon and with the softest, smoothest finish you’ll experience.
Vineyard Notes
Situated in the heart of the cool climate Mount Benson wine region, the Norfolk Rise Vineyard is planted on free draining “Terra Rossa” soils ideal for producing fruit of the highest quality. Within our Merlot vines in early March berry sampling begins and it is then that we begin to see the unique flavours expressed by each plot with variations dependant on the climate the season brings. The most complex, vibrant and expressive fruit is then chosen for this tiny parcel of our favourite Merlot.
Winemaker Notes
After the selection of the best 4 tonne of Merlot grapes from the vineyard, the fruit is crushed, and then fermented in stainless steel. Hand plunging, Bordeaux yeasts and a cool ferment allowed this wine to realise its full potential. The wine was matured in 30% new French oak barriques for +12 months prior to bottling, to allow for a beautiful balance between oak and fruit and allow the vineyards story to be told.
