    2018 Merlot
    30.00
    This elegant and medium bodied Merlot was
    produced by award-winning winemaker, Daniel Binet.

    vat fermentation, followed by a secondary malolactic fermentation and maturation in French Ermitage oak barriques over 15 months.

    The nose and palate suggest plum, blackberry and
    mint chocolate whilst having balanced tannins
    and acidity.

    This wine can be enjoyed now, but will develop over
    a number of years of careful cellaring.
