Tasting Notes

Winemaking and Viticulture

Much of the unique character of this wine is developed in the vineyard, low yielding spur-pruned vines with fruit harvested in the cool of the night to ensure fruit is delivered at temperatures less than 20 degrees. Fermentation is on skins in open top fermenters with subsequent maturation in French oak barrels for up to 22 months prior to bottling.

All the fruit is sourced solely from Shaw Wines Murrumbateman vineyard, an area renowned for production of premium cool climate wines. Stelvin closures are used for freshness and to ensure long term quality.

    Amanda Yallop, The Real Review (October 2020)
    Inky purple/black colour. Bouquet of plum, ‘forest floor’ and sandalwood. Full-bodied and big on flavour, dark cherry, blackberry yoghurt, tonka bean and fresh herbs. The mouthfeel is indulgent, warm and lush with chalky tannin and a spicy finish.
    Cellar to 2028. 90/100 Points.

  2. Cathy Lee

    Another surprise , Shaw Wines Merlot is as good as I have tried, medium to full bodied, blueberry and blackberry flavour, black fruit nose with a lingering finish, well integrated oak. Also a Gold medal wine from major international shows is a nice bonus.
