Winemaker's Notes

Deep red in color with purple strings. The nose displays vibrant floral perfume aromas with an underlying richness of dark chocolate and mulberry. Dark summer cherry and redcurrant flavors with a hint of cigar box. All are integrated with soft but firm tannins for a complex and complete finish.

No.17 is drinking well now with excellent depth of berry fruit, elegance and power. It will also age well for up to 15 years. Blend: 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.

By adding together the plot numbers (2, 3, 5, and 7) from which the fruit for the first vintage of this wine was sourced, you'll arrive at number 17. You'll also arrive at a wine that is greater than the sum of its parts. Merlot is a star in the Orange region, having near perfect berry set every year due to an elevation of more than 900 metres and high UV intensity.
