Description

We have been making Merlot from this block from day one. A mixture of picking just at the point of ripeness and the use of neutral oak results in a beautiful energetic and supple wine that glides across the pallet with the perfect pitch of acidity and earthiness. Merlot from the Adelaide Hills should never be ignored. Vineyard: Broderick. Farming: Organic. Aspect: NW. Planted: 2001. Clone: D3V14. Elevation: 500m. Pruning: Spur. Soil: Sandy clay over schist and sandstone. Vinification: Destemmed, neutral French barriques for 9 months
