This lifted, delicate Merlot is a delight to drink giving red berries, mint, stone fruits and spice out on the nose and supported by a generous palate of soft supple tannins and vanilla oak. Clay rich soils in our vineyards allow this Merlot to develop such intense flavours and display a gorgeous purity of fruit. 

Tasting Notes
Colour: Deep purple red with a bright magenta hue. Bouquet: Raspberry and strawberry mingles with spice, plum and mint aromas. Palate: The wine finishes gently with integrated, creamy vanilla oak and soft, lingering velvety tannins. Ageing Potential: Likely lifespan 2025+ Food Suggestions: Steak in red wine sauce, hard cheeses, mushroom ragu pasta, wood fired pizza with pancetta.
Vineyard Notes
Situated in the heart of the cool climate Mount Benson region, the Norfolk Rise Vineyard is planted on 180 hectares of undulating coastal hills. Within 5 kilometres of the ocean at 37 degrees south of the equator, our Merlot is planted on near perfect “Terra Rossa” soils, providing an ideal level of nutrient and water retention.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were selectively harvested from our vineyards during March. A clean growing season and maritime breezes allowed for grapes of the highest quality to be picked. The grapes were then de- stemmed, crushed and transferred to fermentation tanks. Following pressing, the wine was racked into predominantly French oak barriques for approximately 12 months. Individual barrels were selected for the final blend. A tribute to cool climate estate fruit.
