A traditional Rhone style blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre, full of aromas of coffee and spice with a hint of fennel while the palate is youthful with the old vine Grenache providing raspberries and black cherries, blackcurrant from the Shiraz and Mourvedre giving vigour and savoury earthy flavours, all supported by a firm yet fine tannin structure with well integrated oak adding complexity to the wine.
Geoff Merrill was born in 1953 and was raised on a sheep station in the far north of South Australia until he was 11 years old. The Merrill family then moved to the Barossa Valley, just north of Adelaide, where Geoff`s first links with the wine industry were formed. Following his `apprenticeship` at Chateau Reynella, in 1985 he purchased the historic Mount Hurtle winery. Reknowned for his handle-bar moustache and friendship with many of crickets elite, his talents were recently rewarded when he received the legendary Jimmy Watson Trophy, probably Australia`s most prestigious wine award.
