Description

Merlot, medium ruby in colour showing a bouquet of cherry and black tea accented by subtle sweet vanilla French oak and a fetching blueberry compote note.

The palate is generous and soft on approach, leading with supple cherry fruit and transitioning to richer boysenberry flavours on the mid-palate where the medium-firm tannins, caramel, and notes of clove and black pepper come into play. The vintage’s fresh acidity lends structure to this silky expression of Merlot leaving a lingering, savoury finish.
