Grand Merlot, 2012


Varietal: 100% Merlot
Vineyard: Eden Valley, South Australia
Color: Ruby red with pink/maroon hues
Nose: Hints of ripe tomatoes, cloves and red wine. A complex interplay between earthy tobacco, olive tapenade and herbal tones such as oregano, sage and rosemary.
Palate: Dark rich fruits like blackberries leading to fruit cake. Subtle mint. Firm tannins to finish. seamlessly though to a long, lingering finish.
Maturation: The wine received 2 years in barrel, 30% new French and then 2 years in bottle before release.
Style: This single vineyard, limited release is rich and opulent in its varietal fruit expression. Approachable now yet will develop in complexity with cellaring.
Cellaring Potential: Will reward with careful cellaring through to 2032
