Deep ruby in colour, this wonderfully ripe Merlot is perfumed with notes of black Doris plum, cocoa cream, tobacco box, and sweet vanilla. The rich, velvety palate is a treat for the mouth, offering flavours of sweet dark plum and black cherry finishing with vanilla coffee.

Deep ruby in colour, this wonderfully ripe Merlot is perfumed with notes of black Doris plum, cocoa cream, tobacco box, and sweet vanilla. The rich, velvety palate is a treat for the mouth, offering flavours of sweet dark plum and black cherry finishing with coffee and vanilla. Wonderfully mouth-filling and deeply flavoured, this wine has elegant length and richness.


Winemaker: Anita Ewart-Croy

Harvested after an excellent growing season, the 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 fifteen months of maturation in the barrel, the wine was gently fined with fresh egg whites before being filtered and bottled.

A perfect partner with exceptional beef, Osso Bucco, rich pasta, and venison.

  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.
