"Vintage 2013 was generally mild with one warm period. This produced outstanding Merlot (52%) from our Avery and Silage vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon (46%) from Walker, Avery and Quarry and Petit Verdot (2%) from Dunstan vineyard. These were combined and matured in French oak for 14 months. Dark red in colour, the nose is intense with aromas of mulberry, wild blackberry and liquorice combined with delicate smoky-coffee French oak. The palate is medium bodied with a soft round Merlot mouth- feel, black fruit flavours and a touch of dried herbs. This wine will reward careful cellaring, and decant before drinking." - Balnaves Wines.
