It's no easy feat, but the cool climate region of Mt Benson on the Limestone Coast is rivaling the Coonawarra in terms of uniqueness. This excellent Merlot is crafted from grapes planted on the legendary "terra rossa" soil that was originally populated with black wattles trees. The palate of concentrated mulberry and herbal fruit is layered with spices and fine chocolate characters, with solid yet well balanced tannins. A fine acidity gives roundness and this excellent Merlot can stand proud among Australia's best.

Showing concentrated mulberry and herbal fruit layered with spices and fine chocolate characters, the intense fruit from the nose follows through on the palate. Solid yet well balanced tannins with a fine acidity giving roundness and balance to the over all impressions of this excellent Merlot.


South Australia's Limestone Coast is beginning to encroach on Coonawarra's uniqueness. There is no doubt that Coonawarra is this areas most renowned but coming from behind Padthaway, Wrattonbully, Robe and Mt Benson are all proving to be worthy contenders to the heavyweight title.
