    • Vineyard Notes Vintage 2016 was warm and mild with cool nights following Christmas – again a particularly good season for Merlot. Merlot (60%) from Avery, Silage, and Rise vineyards was combined with Cabernet Sauvignon (34%) from our new French ENTAV clones (338 + 412) Gumtree Cabernet Franc (5%) and Dunstan Petit Verdot (1%). This blend was then matured in fine grained French oak for 11 months.
    • Winemakers Notes 60% Merlot 34% Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Cabernet Franc 1% Petit Verdot
    • Tasting Notes Dark red in colour, the nose is intense with aromas blackberry, blueberry and anise combined with delicate smoky-coffee French oak. The palate is medium bodied with a soft round Merlot mouth-feel and black fruit flavours, with a touch of liquorice and blueberry. This wine will reward careful cellaring, and we recommend decanting before drinking.
