Severe weather fluctuations during bud break and flowering, followed
by cool windy conditions contributed to fewer and uneven bunches and
smaller berries. White wines have shown good acidity and balanced
flavour profiles while reds, despite the challenging season, have shown

The grapes were handpicked in the early hours of the morning from
the Estate’s oldest single vineyard.

The Merlot was vinified with care and passion. Extensive sorting of the
grapes formed part of the quality management process. The grapes
were de-stemmed and partially crushed. A combination of punch
downs and pump overs at cooler temperatures of 24°C - 26°C. Wine
was then left on skin post ferment for 4 - 6 weeks at 16°C. Matured in
70% new French oak barrels for 16 months.

Firm and well balanced, this Merlot is characterised by spicy, dark
plum and berry flavours, whilst silky, ripe tannins ensure a long and
lingering finish.
