Eden Valley Merlot

2017

The heart and soul of the Barossa lives in our lovingly nurtured Estate Vineyard wines. Cool climate, ancient soils, pristine fruit, slower ripening, fuller flavours: this wine is testament to our commitment to excellence and craftsmanship.

93 points, 'A mix of the old and new clones that are seen as the likely saviours of merlot with their vastly improved qualities. Open-fermented at moderate temperatures and matured in French oak (15% new) for 12 months. It has gentle cassis and plum fruit, with soft tannins refreshed by the modest alcohol of the vintage.'
93 points, The Real Review: An elegant merlot with pleasing redcurrant and dark cherry flavours supported by a papery tannin frame. There is an appealing coolness to the fruit, and the wine has not been overdone in any way
