The gravelly loam soils and Mediterranean climate of Manjimup WA, lends itself perfectly to ripen Merlot. Sourced from estate grown fruit, this small batch Merlot shows classic varietal traits of dark plum, fruit cake spice, choc mint and 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.
