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.
– 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.

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.
