Granite Hills Merlot

Cracka Review

Made from hand-harvested Merlot grapes grown in Heathcote and Macedon Ranges regions. Matured in seasoned French and American oak for 12 months, this wine has warm toasty aromas supported by ripe fragrant Merlot fruit. The palate is full but soft, showing spicy plum flavours and a supple tannin structure. Made to be enjoyed now, but will gain greater complexity in the bottle with a further 2-5 years cellaring.

Granite Hills Merlot

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Firm and elegant, this slightly cooked and confectionary merlot should develop pleasing complexity. Its aromas of red cherries, plums and berries reveal earthy and floral undertones, while its palate marries varietal merlot charm with strength and structure.Its deep, slightly jammy flavours of blood plums and dark cherries are supported by sweet creamy chocolate oak and framed by powdery tannins.
