This early release fruit driven merlot, shows a lovely purity of fruit with minimal winemaking intervention. An expressive nose full of red fruit, violets and plums gives way to a smooth palate with coco powder tannins and a spice medley on the finish. Enjoy on a Sunday afternoon with friends with Robe Dairy Fromage Blanc on freshly baked sourdough. Delicious!

Tasting Notes
Colour: Vibrant ruby red. Bouquet: Stonefruit, raspberry, strawberry, tomato vine and perfume. Palate: Soft and velvety with coco powder tannins and a spice medley to finish.
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
Picked off our 100% estate vineyards in March the fruit was crushed and destemmed into stainless steel fermenters. With a quick, cool ferment using Bordeaux yeasts and moderate extraction we have achieved this medium bodied, fruit driven style showing the best of our Mount Benson terroir.
