This Coonawarra Merlot is a dark purple in colour and is full of rich flavours. On the nose, it has ripe red berries and savoury spice notes like rosemary. The palate displays ripe red fruits including plum, black liquorice and complex spices. In addition, there are firm tannins and overlaying notes of cedar, mocha and a sea spray finish.
The wine will benefit from at least 10 years of bottle age as has been seen in previous vintages. The grapes used for this wine were handpicked, fermented in stainless steel, and aged in 54% new French oak for 17 months.
