2019 Norton Summit Merlot
Region: south australia
Harvested from vines planted in 1990, grown in light clay soils rich with quartz and ironstone, driving strong minerality through the wine. The Merlot grapes were fermented as whole bunches in an open top fermenter before spending 11 months in old French oak barriques. A supple merlot, showing notes of blue and black berries, plums, cocoa and bay leaf.
