"Mid garnet; a subtle reflection of red fruits, sage, licorice and leather; the medium-bodied palate is finely textured, with ample fine-grained tannins complementing the subtle red fruit and earthy tones of the finish; a long, fine and elegant example." 94 points James Halliday

Merlot, Cabernet Franc





Matured in French oak.



Ripe and vibrant red fruits, sage, licorice, plum and leather with beautiful hints of smoky eucalyptus.


The Merlot provides hallmark ripe plum and fruit cake aromas and flavours with big solid tannins and the Cabernet Franc slides in hand in glove with the Merlot providing floral aromatics and a silky tannin finish. Complementing these typical varietal expressions, the Whalebone Vineyard terroir provides its own unique thumbprint of smoky eucalyptus, earth and anise.


The 2007 Tapanappa Merlot Cabernet Franc is a very special old vine wine and retains the elegant structure and defining tannins of the Whalebone Vineyard terroir. 2007 Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc has the very ripe fruit flavours and texture of this exceptionally small, warm and early vintage and only 200 cases produced.
