Merlot 22



Mid garnet red, with complex aromas of savory herb and dark berry fruit this Merlot has an elegant palate with fine tannin and well-balanced oak. The refined palate is flavoured with dark cherry, savoury oak and tobacco.



Bright garnet in the glass, this Merlot exhibits complex aromas of tobacco, cedar box, and dark black berry compote with notes of dark cocoa. The elegant palate offers appealing flavours of dark plum and ripe cherry  wrapped with silky tannin.

Winemaker: Anita Ewart-Croy, and Ross Mirko

Exceptionally timed harvest after a challenging 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. The wine was gently fined before being filtered and bottled.

    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.
