2015 Prophecy Merlot
A beautifully structured wine. Fantastic blackcurrant, tobacco and mint combine to explode with intense dark berry and cherry flavours, firm tannins and balanced oak.
Tasting notes The nose shows a rich blend of blackcurrant aromas supported by hints of tobacco and mint.
Intense dark berry and cherry flavours combine with firm tannins and cedary oak to provide
length and persistence. This beautifully structured wine will reward careful long term cellaring.
Viticultural notes Witches Falls produces Prophecy wines from selected parcels of fruit that we consider to be exceptional.
As a result these wines my not be seen every vintage. In 2015 the elements combined to deliver a truly
exceptional vintage in the Granite Belt with the vines thriving in the near perfect ripening and growing
conditions to produce intensely flavoured fruit.
Winemaking notes We have crafted our 2015 Prophecy Merlot from a select block of fruit near Ballandean in the Granite Belt. It has been matured in new and used Oak Barriques for 24 months to produce a wonderful wine that we believe eloquently demonstrates the incredible potential of the Granite Belt as a region and Merlot as a standout variety in the Granite Belt. We have bottled this wine without filtration to preserve its rich colour and flavours.
