Reserve Merlot - a "happy" but sophisticated Merlot.

Our Reserve Merlot is made for drinking now or cellaring for a few years. A fuller style Merlot with bags of flavour that can be enjoyed with food or on it's own. Slightly lighter than the Blends it is a good wine to have with the BBQ during the summer months. 
Vinification – Our best quality grapes from selected rows are hand picked and gently handled. Fermentation is completed over 2-3 weeks and the wine then enters a period of maceration. Daily tasting identifies the optimum time for pressing off the skins. All our wines are pressed off using a traditional basket press to ensure the wine is not tarnished with harsh tannins.
Current Vintage 2013
Tasting Note - Penetrating aromas of sweet leather and dusty spice along with juicy prunes mingle on the nose. Bold, dry and flavoursome with sustained depth and a velvety texture across the palate. This merlot has intensity and a core of flavour with balanced, bold structure.
