REGION McLaren Vale
Situated approximately 35km south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale was first established as a grape-growing region in 1838. Warm summers, moderate winters, dominant
winter rain and low humidity characterize its Mediterranean climate. The region is renowned for producing Merlot of great elegance, structure and power.
COLOUR Bright red cherry
BOUQUET Lifted cherry and mulberry characters with hints of herb and spice notes
PALATE A thick sweet round entry, very approachable with dark mulberry and fresh plum fruit flavours.
WINEMAKING Grapes are picked on both colour and flavour development, then crushed and fermented for 7-10 days at approximately 20 degrees. Small open top fermenters
are used with hand pumping over and returns to ensure optimum extraction of tannins and colour. The ferment is then softly pressed using an airbag press, so we
do not extract the bitter tannin, producing a fruit driven style of wine. Once pressed the wine is allowed to go through natural malolactic fermentation. Further
complexity is added by maturation in French and American oak for 9-12 months.
