“Every parcel of fruit that comes in during harvest receives the same attention at Geoff Merrill Wines. Following fermentation and maturation, I taste every barrel at the winery to select and determine the best wines to include in our ‘Barrel Select’ blend.” – Geoff Merrill

On the nose, an attractive array of bright fruits and comfort foods, such as banana bread, baked apples, lime tart, cashew nuts and toasty notes.
The palate is smooth and flavoursome, with a creamy Greek yoghurt texture and zesty acidity. Nectarine and lime flavours blend with toasty French oak bringing everything together in a tight, complex package.
Drink with chicken parmigiana, crayfish legs, Kangaroo Island Marron, pan seared Sword Fish and pasta Carbonara
VINTAGE INFORMATION: The vintage began quite dry, with just enough rain arriving in late winter and early spring to add some much-needed moisture to the soil depths. Aside from hot conditions during spring, the growing season progressed quite well. Most varieties will have stand out examples, either due to a reduction in yield or the ideal conditions at the end of the season. 2018 overall is a terrific vintage with its most important varieties coming out on top.
|Maturation||14 months in new and 1 year old French oak hogsheads|
|Region||Coonawarra 92% / McLaren Vale 8%|
