Notes: From his early winemaking days, Geoff Merrill has always had a soft spot for the elegance that Cabernet Sauvignon delivers when grown on the special Coonawarra soils. Based on the synergy that blending grapes from two regions can bring, he has created a wine with fine structure & character from start to finish. Dominant black fruit flavours with hints of chocolate all beautifully balanced with integrated oak. Partner with a good quality sirloin steak or roast beef for an excellent pairing.

 

McLaren Vale – located just 30 minutes drive south east of Adelaide & parallel to the coast, these rolling hillside vineyards produce some of Australia`s finest red wines. Some of the areas historic old wineries were established in the late 1800s & many remain today. With a strong regional identity on the international stage, the wines have a distinctive style & subtlety achieved from a combination of very warm summers, mild winters & cooling sea breezes. Many of Australia`s most famous & expensive wines have their vineyard origins within this region.

Coonawarra – the southern most & coolest of South Australia`s vineyards, benefitting from the cooling influences of the Southern Ocean. The soil comprises of a thin strip of iron rich red soil, or `terra rosa`, that imparts a special regional minerality to the wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Producer Info: Geoff Merrill was born in 1953 & was raised on a sheep station in the far north of South Australia until he was 11 years old. The Merrill family then moved to the Barossa Valley, just north of Adelaide, where Geoff`s first links with the wine industry were formed. Following his `apprenticeship` at Chateau Reynella, in 1985 he purchased the historic Mount Hurtle winery. Renowned for his handle-bar moustache & friendship with many of crickets elite, his talents were recently rewarded when he received the legendary Jimmy Watson Trophy, probably Australia`s most prestigious wine award.
