Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Complex layers of dark berry fruits and plum, hints of chocolate and vanillin oak and a soft, earthy note. Very fine, smooth tannins add to the mouthfeel.
Vineyard Notes
Coonawarra’s 2016 vintage was an early one. An ideal growing season with slightly above temperatures, dry conditions and cool nights produced outstanding Merlot fruit with deep colour, rich layers of fruit and fine tannins.
Production Notes
Maturation of select parcels for 14 months in a combination of 46% French oak (16% new) and 26% American oak (8% new) barrels adds complexity and suppleness.
Food Pairing Notes
Coq a vin, chargrilled steak with blue cheese sauce or pasta al pomodoro.
