Tasting Notes: Our 2017 Merlot is from the Hunter Valley, plum red in colour, the nose carries aromas of plums with leafy notes. The palate is rich and full of black olive, plum and earth tones, integrated with vanillin and charry oak, leaving the wine with a lush mid palate, retained textured tannins and an overall mouthfeel that is soft and round.
Dan Murphy's Wine Panel 2017 Vintage 91 points
"Here's a merlot that performs exactly as merlot should - soft and plush, sweet, ripe fruit, bright juicy and varietal with the added complexity of a deft touch of pepper spice."
Huon Hooke, The Real Review 2016 Vintage 90 Points.
"Medium- to full red colour with a tinge of purple. The bouquet is smoky and meaty, charcuterie-like and slightly funky, but clean; the palate sweet-fruited and lush, with fresh herb and sweet plum nuances. Its medium to full bodied and soft of tannin, with plushness and silky texture. Terrific value. 23/4/2018."
