Savory, dark and lovely. Vibrant black plums, field berries and mouth-wateringly rich and deep layers of dark spices and violets. Decant for 1-2 hours.

Reviews and Ratings

Our Merlot was aged 18 months in new French oak and blended with 3% Malbec to help flesh out the ripe, red fruit flavours that abound in this wine. Look for black cherry aromas, a hint of coffee and smokiness, light peppery/ roasted pepper flavours and gamy qualities. Good depth, with light to medium tannins. Good concentrated finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
