Tasting Notes

A vibrant, lively wine with an appealing colour. The aim was to achieve a “salmon pink” colour by minimising any skin contact, also known as Amiel style.

Although youthful and crisp, the wine is easy to drink and a real crowd pleaser.


Ageing Potential

Drink within 2-3 years

Blend Information

100% Merlot

In The Cellar

Bunches were destemmed and whole berries went directly into the press. Kept constantly under carbon dioxide gas to ensure minimum oxidation, the grapes only underwent the softest pressing stage.
