New clones of Merlot in Australia are starting to create Merlot wines of a different style and better quality than previously expected of Australian Merlot. The Merite Merlot 2015 is from a significant multi-clone parcel and is aiming to break through barriers to set a new benchmark for Australian Merlot. The moment of perfect ripeness has been captured in the palate with blue and black fruits and complex aromatics of plums, berries, clove and violets. A bright, juicy medium-bodied wine which can be enjoyed now with a much anticipated meal or cellared for later.
The average price per bottle is only available in a case of 12.
