2017 Merlot

Our 2017 vintage of Merlot is a bold and powerful one that displays rich black fruits, ripe tannins, and a long finish. Offering an aromatic mélange of anise, black cherry, and dark cocoa this is a well-structured wine that is filled with ripe fruit and bright acidity. The long and complex finish showcases the quality of our estate vineyard along the Golden Mile Bench.
