2021 Merlot


Vintage: 2021 - a cooler vintage by Margaret River standards resulting in wines with heightened aromatics and bright natural acids.

Varietals: 86% Merlot; 14% Cabernet Sauvignon

Appearance: Vibrant ruby red.

Aroma: Vibrant aromas of redcurrant, black plum and blueberry combine with complexing notes of dark chocolate and cooking herb spice.

Palate: Medium bodied, flavoursome and juicy. Plush fruits of black plum and redcurrant jelly sweeten the front and mid-palates, whilst savoury herb nuances of thyme and bay combine with cedar, ground coffee and cocoa spice to complex the finish. Silken tannins provide for form, structure and length.

Oak detail: 18 months maturation in a combination of new (20%) and seasoned French oak barriques – using a selection of Bordeaux coopers.

Cellaring: Tannins are sufficiently integrated to allow for immediate drinking, however will continue to develop and evolve over the next 6-8 years.
