We closely managed the 15 rows of grapes for this estate grown 100% Merlot. Excess fruit was dropped to ensure maximum ripeness, and the grapes handpicked in optimum condition. When fully ripened in a cool climate, Merlot displays layers of complex flavours and this 2005 vintage is no exception.
Aged entirely in oak for 15 months (French and American), this wine is rich in colour and elegant in structure, with aromas of blackberry spice, plums and cedar. The palate is full bodied with flavours of ripe blackberry, mulberry, chocolate and spice. Silky tannins and a soft mouthfeel give this wine a beautiful finish.
