Merlot is a versatile variety, producing wines that range from delicate and light bodied to big and full. It is one of the most important grapes in France’s Bordeaux blends, and in Australia it is made both as a single varietal wine and in blends, most commonly with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dark cherry red in colour. This aromatic Merlot opens with notes of morello cherry and blue fruits, followed by violets and dark chocolate aromas. The palate is bursting with dark cherry and plum flavours, sweeping along into savoury notes from the French oak. Lovely natural acidity combines well with the tannins and fruit to keep the wine enticing and structural. This wine is blended to be enjoyed now and for five years.
