This 2009 Merlot is the biggest Merlot in Australia. It's bold and full of flavour. The Merlot vines were planted in 1983, which makes them one of the oldest in the Orange Region.  

The Merlot has a consistently dark blood plum and ripe berry fruit flavours. Great tannins and excellent length. It is certainly not a light weight Merlot. This is a great food wine. Partner it with roast meats or a friend around the kitchen table.

We suggest this wine will drink exceptionally well over the next 4 to 8 years.
