Grapes are harvested when the perfect mix of sugar, acid, flavours and tannin are ready. The grapes are crushed and go into large fermentation vessels where they are inoculated with yeast and ferment for around 14 days. They are then pressed into another tank where they will go through Malolcatic fermentation before being racked off lees ready for oak treatment. They will mature for 10 - 12 months before being fined and prepared for bottling. The wine is ready for bottling from February of the year after harvest.
This Merlot displays delightful light strawberry characters and soft dusty oak on the nose. On the palate, it is a well balanced wine of medium weight, with flavours of raspberry, good light tannins, and hints of vanilla oak.
