The gravelly loam soils and Mediterranean climate of Manjimup WA, combine perfectly to ripen Merlot. Sourced from estate grown fruit, this small batch Merlot shows classic varietal traits of dark berries, spice, mocha and a touch of dried herbs. Subtle French oak offers sweet cedar and vanillin dust complexity. The palate delivers sweet supple fruit, balanced by fine powdery tannins. This medium bodied wine is designed for immediate enjoyment or short term cellaring.
