Merlot 2019

South Australia

Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.

Nose: The nose offers vibrant notes of red cherries, raspberries, plums and a touch of mint.

Palate: The palate is medium-bodied, soft and juicy with red berries and plums.

Pairing: Perfect with Mediterranean dishes, try this Merlot with a traditional wood oven pizza.

Cellaring: Drink now to 2023
