Merlot, or how the French say, “young blackbird”. For vintage 2021, it provided a milder Margaret River vintage. Excellent growing conditions for vines and producing fruit with fantastic intensity. The Merlot 181 clone can ripen longer, has finer tannins and a natural dark fruit character, the grapes for this vintage were picked at an optimal ripeness with a natural acidity present.

Best Merlot Wine in Australia

On the nose it’s elevated and perfumed with notes of dark cherry, blackcurrant combined with graphite and eucalyptus. That generous energy of dark fruit meets the palate with violet, fennel seed and hay. The use of American and French oak promotes tannins that have a firm astringency on the finish, so allow this wine to breathe, open and unfold. This wine goes well with red meat, charcuterie, and soft cheese.
