Vineyard Regions: Predominantly from the Riverland district of north-eastern Victoria with significant proportions from the premium wine growing regions of the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills.
Vintage Conditions: A beautiful spring led to flourishing growth and a warmer than average summer throughout South Australia. An abundant canopy and careful vineyard management protected the Merlot grapes from the worst of the heat resulting in a crop with ripe, forward flavours. This was combined with the elegance of premium fruit from cooler regions, resulting in a balanced, flavour driven wine.
Wine & Spirits(2008 Vintage) Berry and cherry flavors dominate this medium-bodied Merlot. Hints of tea with sweet oak and fresh raspberry emerge on the mid palate. The finish is soft and sweet with mild tannins.
