Winemakers Notes

This cool climate Merlot is an excellent example of what this noble variety can achieve with excellent viticulture and strict limits placed on yield.

It is the result of the third crop of Merlot off our Karridale vineyard. Harvested in early April, crushed and chilled then transported by tanker east across the Nullarbor to the O'Leary Walker winery at Watervale, in South Australia's Clare Valley, where winemaker David O'Leary made it.

Colour:
The extra two days of movement on the skins helps explain the wine's wonderful black/purple colour.

Bouquet and Palate:
And the colour does not belie the wine - full, rich and opulent. Deep, generous fruit wedded to smooth, predominantly French oak. A fuller, more serious wine than most Merlot, yet eminently drinkable and with promise of a big future.
