Cumulus Chasing Clouds Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Forget the soft and simple stereotype, this is Cumulus' flagship Merlot - from the cool heights of Orange, this is full of beautiful spicy fruits and supple tannins, with intensity of flavour to burn. A Merlot for grown-ups!

Winemaker's Notes

Sourced from the higher elevations of our Estate vineyard above 600m, our Chasing Clouds range is inspired by this elevation, as well as our continual quest for greater heights in winemaking.

The vines are low yield, providing intense flavours and even berry ripening. The wines are vibrant, whilst retaining the elegance characteristic of the high elevation terroir.

Appearance: Rich red with purple edges.

Nose: Ripe red berry fruits, plum and bell pepper with a leafy herbaceous edge.

Palate: Medium palate weight with supple tannins and light oak integration.

Food: Roasted meats, quail, rich, Italian-style or Mediterranean inspired dishes.

Cellaring: Up to 5 years.

Alcohol: 14%
