Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Estate Merlot is a unique and opulent wine that requires outstanding fruit from our vineyards in Bendigo to produce a beautiful wine with richness and complexity. The nose has intense aromas of plums, black cherry and spice with a touch of pencil shaving oak. The palate is generous and savoury with flavours of plums, black currants and pepper with hints of oak, tobacco and spice.
Vineyard Notes
The temperate conditions during the growing season produced the high-quality fruit to allow the production of an Estate Merlot for only the fourth time. Yields in the vineyard were restricted to one tonne per acre to encourage intensity and depth in the finished wine. The fruit was hand harvested and conveyed immediately o the winery for processing.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was gently destemmed and crushed to open fermenters and cold soaked prior to fermentation. The wine spent 21 days on skins and both traditional plunging and pump over techniques were utilised. The finished wine was aged in French barriques (30% new) for 14 months before a light filtration and bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Moroccan style lamb shanks
