  • Sweet oak
  • Spiced fruit
  • Chocolate
  • Generous weight

This wine displays aromatics spiced fruit, plum and blueberries with layers of chocolate and sweet spice. An elegant soft Merlot with spiced fruit characters, generous weight and good length of flavour. Chocolate and blue fruit characters linger on a sweet oak finish.

The climate is hot with high evaporation rates and generally low rainfall, making irrigation essential. The climate is also continental, resulting in long sunny days and noticeably cooler nights. Modern viticultural and winemaking techniques mean that the climate can be seen as one of the region's strengths. Long sunshine hours ensure fruit ripens fully and low relative humidity results in little incidence of disease.

The fruit was machine harvested and selected from vineyards in the Murray Darling and Riverland regions. Conditions for vintage were ideal, yields were good and the fruit was in excellent condition.

Food Pairing: This wine Is a wonderful food wine that is suited to a wide range of food styles particularly red meat dishes like BBQ spare ribs.
