Haskell Vineyards Merlot 2010

Made from a 12 year old vineyard that takes a lot of stress in the season. Clever nurturing of the vines over the past couple of years has rewarded us with high quality fruit. The grapes were picked at phenolic ripeness. Fermented at 28 degrees C with pump-overs four times per day. After pressing, malolactic fermentation and maturing in 100% new oak for 16 months before bottling. Tasting Notes: Lovely flavours of cranberries, mulberries and pomegranates. The palate has firm, tight, powdery fruit tannins which balance well with the fruit flavours from the nose and the acidity. The aftertaste is lingering with dark chocolate. Good balance from nose right through to aftertaste.
