Winemakers Comments

A proper winter, complete with enough rain and without a frost risk, allowed us to hope for some generous fruit flavours in our 2021 Merlot. With young vines we have to be careful to manage crop levels as we expect a layer of tannin and a serious aspect to this wine. Our Merlot is harvested just metres from the winery then fermented in open vats where we carefully manage extraction to ensure the fruit carries the wine with supporting tannin. We see abundant fruit and vibrancy in this edition of our Merlot, owing to the very favourable vintage weather with little rain and no heat spikes leading into harvest time. - Jules Ashmead & Brock Harrison
