Estate Merlot 2017

Tasting Notes

Our Estate Merlot displays aromatics of crushed autumn leaves and cherries. The structured palate offers balanced flavours of savoury black olive, mulberries and integrated toasty oak.


Merlot grapes are handpicked, destemmed and crushed into open-top fermenters. The wine is gently pressed and matured in French oak barriques for 18 months.

2017 Vintage

2017 Vintage brought stable and pleasant conditions across the vineyard, allowing perfect budburst and fruit set. This parcel of Merlot grapes was harvested on the 4th March.

Halliday Rating - 95 points

"Hand-picked, destemmed and crushed into small open fermenters, matured for 18 months in French oak. No frills other than the benefit of the '17 vintage that invests the wine with very good length and a pleasing finish."
