IN THE GLASS: blueberry, black cherry, black plum, leather, tobacco, mocha; medium-plus body, elegant tannins, long finish.
The grapes for this Merlot are sustainably grown on our Fleet Road Vineyard – Tightrope Estate. They were selectively hand-picked over 2 days.
The grapes were destemmed into 1/2-ton fermenters, where it was cold-soaked for five days before fermentation was allowed to begin. The grapes were on skins for approximately three weeks before being pressed off and put into barrel. This wine was aged in barrel for 12 months, in French Oak, with a small percentage of American Oak for added complexity.
DECANTER 2023 - Generous plum, spice, purple flower and black pepper on the nose, then to a vibrant palate of stewed raspberry and a fresh acidity. 90 Points - Silver
