Eyes

Ruby red with a purple hue.

Nose

Fragrant violets, red berry fruit, regional mint & background French oak.

Mouth

A vibrant mouthful of fresh plum-like fruit complemented by forest floor flavours of mint leaves, earth & cedar wood. Medium-bodied with a firm structure from the fine grain tannins, this Merlot is memorable for its fragrance & lingering bright fruit flavours that invite immediate drinking, however some cellaring time will also reward those who are patient.

Winemaking Notes

The Victorian Pyrenees region is one of the few regions in Australia capable of producing consistent & distinctive high quality Merlot. The 2014/2015 grape growing season provided some winter rains, a cool spring, then a warm dry summer & autumn, easily ripening the low cropping Pyrenees Merlot grapes. Displaying definitive varietal & regional character, this wine was produced from selected parcels of grapes sourced only from our estate vineyard. The 2015 Blue Pyrenees Merlot was fermented for one week on skins in open fermenters & two weeks on skins in closed fermenters, giving two very different fruit characters. This was followed by careful pressing & subsequent maturation for 18 months in mature French oak barriques, before final blend selection in 2017.
