Vintage 2016 was extremely pleasant with optimal temperatures throughout the season. Contrast to previous years, 2016 saw a decent amount of rain that was perfectly balanced by a steady, warm summer. The resulting yields offer well-developed flavours, colour and structure in the fruit

Vinification Details

The grapes used in our 2016 Merlot remained on their skins for 10-14 days to extract their full colour and flavour intensity. Each lot was then gently pressing into its own tank for malolactic fermentation. After carefully assessing the quality of the separate wines, the best lots are judiciously blended to maintain their classic Merlot profile and then aged on French oak before final blending
