Cracka Review

Magical Merlot with a soft, seductive body. Lashings of dark fruit and even a little bit of Margaret River style thrown into the equation. if you're looking for something without the kick of Shiraz or Cabernet, then this Merlot is your man.

Winemaker's Notes

This medium body Merlot has been produced using premium grapes from the Margaret River region. The wine exhibits the classic varietal Merlot aromas of dark plums, herbs and chocolate. On the palate, notes of bay leaves, vanilla and mocha are completed by a soft round texture finishing with fine velvety tannins.

Alc/vol: 14.5%

expert reviews about

2015 Watershed Shades Margaret River Merlot

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Estate-grown in Wallcliffe, 8-12 days on skins, MLF in tank, matured in used French and American oak for up to 14 months. A wine of considerable complexity and intensity, with a continuing interplay between fruit and oak. The fruit component is a mouthwatering mix of cassis, bay leaf and black olive, the oak instilling cedary flavours and persistent, fine-grained tannins. A wine that grew and grew each time it was re-tasted. Great value.
