2009 Dry Land Merlot

2009 Dry Land Merlot Bottle

Medium bodied and full of fruit, this is our first ever vintage of Merlot!

Sourced from our St Clare vineyards, this fruit is sometimes blended with our other red wines, however 2009 was such a good vintage that Justin decided it needed to be showcased as a straight varietal!

Open fermentation for 10 days followed by 2 years maturation in second use French Oak hogsheads has resulted in this smooth, fruit driven wine. With aromas of plum and menthol, the palate shows flavours of blackcurrent and mint and is finished with dry tannins.

2006 Fortified Shiraz

2006 Fortified Shiraz Bottle

Super ripe premium fruit was hand picked and blended with brandy spirit to create this luscious wine

Hand picked from Reilly's Vineyard at 20° Baume, the fruit was cooled for 4 days then open fermented for 8 days. It was then fortified with brandy spirit to hault fermentation before maturing in American Oak Hogsheads for 15 months. The result is a smooth full flavoured wine with rich dark fruit and cassis flavours. Enjoy now or cellar until you retire!

Bronze Medal - 2008 Clare Valley Wine Show
