Forget about Passion,
Merlot’s our Obsession.

"Unlike any other Australian Merlot I know" - Philip White

From a significant parcel of four new clones of Merlot. Situated on a rockly sloping rise where the soils comprise iron-rich Terra Rossa over a limestone and clay base. The interplay between a plate of clay and infertile limestone strike a balance to create Merlot with great complexity, structure and aromatics. The vineyard is meticulously managed with moderate yield from mature, balanced vines.


This is a pure Merlot: from a single vineyard of 100 percent Merlot. Flavourful, complex, food friendly with elegance, structure and fine tannins. Each vintage clonal batches will be vinified independently until blending. The batches that make the final blend will be the ultimate reflection of the site and vintage. The blending together of these new clones, each showing distinct characteristics, creates a complex, assertive, yet delicate Merlot.
