The Inventor 2019 Merlot
This richly flavoured wine with complex layers of bright red fruits and plum lingers with subtle French oak flavours and fine grain tannins. A soft medium bodied wine which is well suited to immediate enjoyment with pasta dishes, red meats and mild cheeses, or carefully cellar for increased complexity.
"Attractively fruited and styled, the wine shows Black Doris plum, violet, vanillin oak and olive characters on the nose. The palate delivers excellent weight and fruit intensity combined with fine texture and rounded mouthfeel, finishing long and comforting. Splendidly drinkable. At its best: now to 2031." *93 Points* - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Sourced from selected Merlot vineyards located in the premium growing area of Coonawarra.
Fruit was fermented to dryness on skins. Following pressing, clarification and blending, the wine was matured in French oak hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling.
