The classic Merlot palate, with rich, dark berry flavours like black jubes filling the front and mid palate. Firm tannin then takes over and gives the wine a linear, astringent but not too aggressive finish, which is juicy and concentrated.

TASTING NOTES
Colour and condition: Deep brick red hue; bright condition.
Nose: A really youthful appeal, with an immediate impression of dark fruit aromas – black berries, mulberries and black currants. A second viewing shows the beginnings Merlot’s “darker” side, with tar, leather and earth just starting to add complexity into the background.
Palate: The classic Merlot palate, with rich, dark berry flavours like black jubes filling the front and mid palate. Firm tannin then takes over and gives the wine a linear, astringent but not too aggressive finish, which is juicy and concentrated.

VINTAGE NOTES
The warm conditions meant the length of the flowering to harvest growing season was slightly shorter. Merlot was only one day early, at 115; and Cabernet Franc was 2 days early, at 117.
Naturally, ripeness was good for both varieties. Merlot was slightly riper than average at 13.7⁰; and Cabernet Franc almost average at 13.3⁰.
Yields were also good, albeit slightly below average. Merlot cropped at 7.98 tonnes per hectare, down 7% and Cabernet Franc produced 8.8 tonnes per hectare, down 2%.
Finally, in keeping with the theme of 2012, there were no negative quality influences, with the birds kept under control with the application of the nets and our fungicide spray program was successful in preventing disease. All we had to do was get it safely into the winery and make sure we protected what Mother Nature had given us.
