Prophecy Merlot knows how to make a grand entrance. For 24 months we’ve waited with a sense of anticipation, but the soiree began as soon as the blackcurrant, tobacco and mint aromas filled the room. Glasses clinked, and taste buds tingled as the dark berry and cherry flavours danced with firm tannins and cedary oak. The party would leave a lasting impression as Prophecy Merlot’s rich velvety texture never fails to delight.
Prophecy Merlot has always captivated those who have had the chance to try the eloquent flavours it delivers. As Prophecy wines are only produced from parcels of fruit that we consider exceptional, they aren’t necessarily seen every vintage. In fact, the last Prophecy Merlot to grace our presence was the 2012 vintage so you can imagine the state of excitement at the winery when we knew the 2015 vintage of this outstanding wine was on its way!
The fruit for this Prophecy Merlot is from a select block grown near Ballandean in the Granite Belt. The wine has been aged in new and seasoned oak for 24 months to allow the full expression of the Merlot fruit characteristics. We are proud to deliver what we believe is an exceptional wine that demonstrates the incredible potential of the Granite Belt as a premium wine growing region.
This wine is the perfect choice for those special celebrations! Not only does it complement food beautifully, it is also amazing when enjoyed on its own. If you do choose to pair it with food we suggest a rich rib fillet to perfectly complement its depth. Our Prophecy Merlot is also a great wine to set aside for those special occasions in the future (if you can!) as it will reward long term cellaring.
