Punt Road Merlot 2013
"Black truffle with ripe plum, hints of cedar, black olives, pencil shavings, and fine, dusty tannins."
-Tim Shand, Head Winemaker
Sourced from the two oldest blocks on the Napoleone vineyard, this merlot is low-cropping and produced in limited quantities.
2013 was an excellent growing season with wines achieving fantastic flavour development, ripeness without excessive alcohols, and beautifully balanced acidity.
Hand-picked from the Napoleone Vineyard. 100% destemmed then crushed and cold soaked for several days to assist with colour and flavour extraction. After gentle pressing the wine was matured in a combination of 25% new and seasoned French hogsheads for 9 months.
James Halliday – July, 2015 Campbell Mattinson Halliday Wine Companion 2016 93 points It sidles up to you and before you know it, you're entirely on board. There's no big attack of flavour, it's more charm than weight, but the way it presents chocolate, plum, mulberry, gum leaf and earth flavours is most attractive. Tannin has been well strung. Length is assured.
