Winemaker: Anita Ewart-Croy

Selectively harvested after an excellent growing season, the Merlot grapes were quickly delivered to the winery and then gently destemmed. Partially crushed berries were then plunged twice daily in a small open fermenter while complexity enhancing yeast conducted the ferment. Once dry, the skins were pressed from the wine, and the wine was transferred to American and French barriques for malolactic fermentation.

After twelve months of maturation in the barrel, the wine was gently fined with fresh egg whites before being filtered and bottled.

  1. Gordon Still

    The TW Wines 2019 Merlot is an absolute joy to taste. Rich and smooth, with a very pleasant aftertaste. Unfamiliar with the TW offerings this has been an excellent introduction.
