Merlot 2019

Tasting Notes

Medium-bodied with flavours of plum, black raspberry and spice with bright acidity, soft tannins and a balanced, savory finish.

Enjoy now with grilled game, roasted fowl stuffed with dried fruit, hard cheeses and pastas with rich tomato-based sauces. Can also be cellared for the medium term to further develop complexities.

WINEMAKING NOTES

The grapes were harvested in mid October exclusively from the Lakeshore Farm Vineyard to the northeast of the winery. After manual sorting the grapes were crushed and destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with regular delestage to gently extract colour and structure. After 30 days skin contact, the wine was pressed and moved back to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation and aging until it was bottled in April 2020 following light fining and filtration.
