Optimally ripe Merlot was hand harvested from selected blocks of old vines and the low yields ensure concentration. The healthy fruit was destalked with only 70% being crushed and the balance remained in the form of whole berries.

Both the pumpover and punch down systems were used for extraction purposes and a portion was taken through to the final blending stage without the use of preservative. After pressing, the wine was racked to French oak barrels (65% new) for MLF and maturation. After two barrel rackings and 18 months the wine was blended and bottled.

Villiera Monro Merlot

SKU: 6001551001571
  • Intensely aromatic with forthcoming berry fruit and hints of chocolate, spice and vanilla. It is well balanced with velvety texture but with enough grip to ensure good length.
