Margan 2018 Merlot
The 2018 Hunter Valley vintage was outstanding, it was characterized by warm dry days and cooler nights. The fruit was cool fermented to preserve primary fruit characters and pressed to old French oak where it matured for 9 months. Constant evaluation during time in barrel ensured that we bottled this wine at the perfect time.
The result is a fruit driven softer style of wine with subtle integrated oak with plenty of vibrant fruit and a soft finish. The palate is rich in ripe fruit with a touch of savoury cigar box with soft tannins adding length for a silky finish.
