Merlot 2016

RRP: $22.00

The fruit for this wine came from the Orange wine region in New South Wales. The fruit was harvested and immediately transported to our winery in the Hunter Valley where it was crushed. Primary fermentation took place in 5 tonne stainless steel fermenters before being pressed off to tank where malolactic fermentation was allowed to finish. The wine was matured in 20% new French oak barriques for 18 months before being filtered and bottled.
