Winemaker Notes

Merlot is a relatively new variety to the Barossa Valley, with few acres planted. The grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for six days to give color and flavor before being transferred to new American oak casks to finish the fermentation. The barrel fermentation gives softness and complexity to this quite fleshy and raspberry-like wine. Outstanding purple color while the bouquet has a depth of raspberry-like fruit with wood overtones. The palate has good structure and flavor yet is still very soft. Since it is blended with approximately 10% Cabernet Sauvignon to give added complexity and body, this wine has good balance which will give it longevity.
