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.

96 Points - Nicks Wine Merchants, www.nicks.com.au
"Totally opaque inky black in colour with deep dark red black hue. Aromas of liquorice, ripe blackberry and dark chocolate waft from the glass followed by some vanillin confectionary. Dense and super rich the palate packs a powerful punch of opulent liquorice, ripe blackberry liqueur and dark chocolate flavours over vanillin oak and spice. Luscious layers of fruit are interwoven with a plush sumptuous mouthfeel and velvety tannins. Outstanding depth and power with very long liquorice, luscious riper blackberry, dark chocolate, subtle vanillin cedar and spice aftertaste. A classic rich opulent Shiraz that will continue to evolve over the next 4 to 5 years (2013-2018)"

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!
