    Tasting notes
    Deep garnet in colour, this sumptuous Merlot will have you captivated at first swirl with its juicy dark berry aromas. Cassis, dark chocolate and black cherry dance with grippy tannins on the rich, decadent and full-bodied palate. Barrel ageing in European and American oak barriques has added warmth and richness. If you can resist the temptation to drink now, this indulgent Merlot will reward careful cellaring!
    Viticultural notes
    This year, the drought has had a devastating impact on Granite Belt fruit production with the harvest being less than 5 per cent of the usual amount. This has meant that we’ve had to look to other premium wine regions (including South Australia) to make up the shortfall.
    The definition of Provenance is ‘the origin or beginning of something’s existence’, and we felt this perfectly embodied the essence of the new range. Our hand-crafted wines have always embraced regional expression and now more than ever, this will be the case.
    Winemaking notes
    New and used European and American oak barriques have been used to mature the wine.
