A very elegant merlot with great intensity and vibrancy. This red has a fantastic rounded structure and is drinking beautifully now.

2017 was an excellent vintage for Merlot, with cool even temperatures throughout. The fruit was harvested in March, then hand sorted to remove any damaged berries and leaves. Grapes were then transferred into fermenters, where fermentation kicked off after 3 days and remained there for another 22 days. The aim was to remove as much colour and flavour from the skins and balance this with fine tannins. The wine was then separated from the skins at pressing and transferred to barrel for ageing.
