Rare Wine Tasting
Over the month of August we are also going to put our Block D Merlot on taste. Ahhh Merlot! A somewhat unfairly maligned variety in our view, so we have set the vineyard crew to righting this injustice.
This wine is made from a small reserve block of Merlot that has received some extra special attention from Jamie and Micah in the Vineyard. A specific adaptation of cane pruning and training over two trellis wires has been employed to promote regular growth throughout the vines. This is to optimise ripeness regularity across all grape bunches.
The result is a Merlot that is simply a cut above. Very little of this wine was produced and we rarely make it available for tasting, so avail yourself of the opportunity to try it while you can. With all that we have put into the production of Block D Merlot and it’s scarcity necessitates a luxury price tag. The silky tannins, plush plummy fruits and savoury edge makes for a luxury taste.
