We may sound like a broken record at times but here at Feathertop we continue to harp on about the wondrous virtues of quality, cool climate Merlot. Held in the highest esteem in France and the basis of some of the most famous (and expensive) wines from Bordeaux, the varieties’ treatment in Australia is nothing short of a crime against grapemanity!! Our Merlot from the amazing 2015 vintage continues our legacy to produce wines that we like to think do justice to the varieties’ standing as one of France’s most noble varieties. It is a wine of great power, elegance and complexity, full of rich flavours of sweet, spiced plums, dark cherries, and mocha. The soft, plush tannins and natural acidity leave the finish dry and craving for more. All hail the mighty Merlot!
