Nose

Aromas of cherries, blueberries and blackberry jam with a waft of sweet spice.

Background

Our elevated location produces this delicate, fragrant, medium bodied wine with elegant strengh and supple tannins making it suitable for short term ageing. 2015 was a fine growing season, with warm days balanced by consistently cool nights. It was a relatively dry season with grapes ripening a touch earlier than usual. The first Merlot was harvested in the middle of March and the last coming in at the end of the month. Weather conditions prior to harvest were also mostly dry, ensuring perfectly healthy fruit. The core of the blend comes from our own estate vineyard at California Road at the heart of the McLaren Vale region, in the Tatachilla subregion west of the township of the McLaren Vale. This is complemented with fruit from a small number of highly-valued growers who understand our obsessive insistence on perfectly ripe healthy grapes, low yields and harvesting at precisely the right time. Harvested in the cool of the early morning to preserve fruit structure. Gently crushed and naturally fermented in open fermenters for nine days, hand plunged twice a day with extended time on skins pre and post ferment to allow gentle extraction.
