2011 James Estate Merlot
An elegant wine, exhibiting bright varietal flavours, a wonderful suppleness of palate and subtle use of oak. This Merlot was sourced from our Two Cedars block on southern boundary of our vineyard.
Appearance: Deep ruby red
Nose: Blackberries, plums and spice with hints of violets and dried herbs
Palate: Medium-bodied with ripe fruit flavours balanced by well integrated oak
Food pairing: Tapas, pizza, cold meat
Cellaring: Drinking beautifully now, but will age well over the medium term
