This 2019 Craggy Range Gimblett Merlot wine has a deep ruby with crimson hue. This Merlot wine has a welcoming aroma of ripe plum and the scent of a winter Christmas kitchen. The Gimblett Merlot wine is exquisitely structured with sweet fruit supported by layers of fine tannin creating a taut yet luscious mouthfeel.
Our Gimblett Gravels Merlot is carefully selected from parcels of Merlot in our Gimblett Gravels Vineyard. The warm, gravelly soils are perfect for the production of Merlot and the moderate heat allows the wine to retain freshness and structure without showing over-ripe characters.
