Bright, juicy and delightfully complex, our 2020 Estate Merlot is everything. Succulent aromas of blackcurrant, Ceylon black tea, and blueberry are showcased on the nose. Rich dark cocoa and acai berry lead the palate, complemented by refined dusty tannins.
Each individual block of Merlot was picked at optimal ripeness and fermented separately in small open-top fermenters. After gentle cap management and the perfect amount of time on skins, the wine was carefully pressed and put to barrel. After spending 16 months in French oak, the wine was blended and bottled without filtration or fining.
