Our 2017 merlot has lifted aromas of berry and plum, backed by subtle, oaky characters.These luscious fruit characters are also apparent on the palate, alongside the soft tannins, and the vanillin characters of the French oak.
Our 2017 vintage is ready to enjoy now but will continue to evolve beautifully over the next seven to eight years.

The Real Review - Ranked #5 of 32 2017 Merlot from Australia:
"Deep, youthful, bright purple/red colour. The bouquet is similarly fresh and bright, clean and pure, with raspberry, briar and tobacco aromas, red cherry and a hint of crushed leaf. A superb aroma, all about fresh fruit and bags of it. Sweet fruit charm. A delicious joven-style wine. 23 Apr 2018. Cellar 2018–2028." - Huon Hooke
