A wonderful example of Merlot produced in an “Old World” style. Aromas of tomato leaf, lush forest berry and silverbeet flood the senses, with a delicate cracked pepper intertwined with cigar essence. The palate adds further nuances of blood plum and liquorice. The silky tannins brought about by the use of old barrels enhance the complexity of this wine and couples beautifully with the firm body and lingering warm finish.
