Geoff Merrill Premium

2015 Pimpala Vineyard Cabernet Merlot

“This exclusive, small batch range pay homage to the beautiful old vineyards that are the centrepiece of our home, the famous heritage listed Mount Hurtle winery. Established in the late 1800’s, Mount Hurtle has been our home since the early 1980’s.” – Geoff Merrill


Wine Reviews:

95 points- Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)

"This is brimming with dark fruit richness together with dried herb, vanillin oak and dark chocolate notes on the nose. The palate exhibits awesome fruit power and depth with plush texture and fine chalky tannins, offering classic structure as well as opulence. 5 stars."

94 points- Australian Wine Showcase Magazine

92 points- Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

“Deep, dark red colour with a good trace of purple. The aromas are nutty with some char-oak notes and background blackberry aromas, a hint of mint. The varietal character is there, and the palate is very fruit-sweet and ripely rich, the tannins ample but soft and the almost luscious fruit coming through strongly. Acidity is prominent. Very good flavour and already very approachable.”
