Product Description

Tasting

The Virginian Merlot carries a rewarding texture and full complex flavours with the nose rich in aromas of ripe berry fruits, plums and raspberries. Aged in French and American oak for over 12 months, the character of this exceptional wine gives you what a classic Merlot was meant to be.

Vintage

The wet winter in the 04/05 growing season in the Adelaide Plains region provided an even and long ripening period. Mild weather throughout spring and summer allowed us to harvest the fruit with excellent colour and rich flavour.

Serving Suggestions

Barbequed meats, lamb shanks, game casseroles, ratatouille, mature cheese

Reviews

Defies the logic that merlot should adapt to the heat of the Adelaide Plains climate; is lighter-bodied than the ’04, but has similar varietal character. – (87 points) James Halliday
