“This wine forms part of our range named after our company owned vineyards in McLaren Vale. Sitting at the foothills of the Adelaide Hills, our Wickham Estate vineyards are located in one of the coolest areas in McLaren Vale providing us greater flexibility and diversity in our wine portfolio.” – Geoff Merrill
The colour is a very dark red with great depth and vibrancy with aromas displaying blackberry, cinnamon, earth, fruitcake and violets blended with cedary oak, vanilla and chocolate.
The palate is powerfully structured belying its age, keeping the distinctive fruit in check. Although released as a mature wine, time will bring out the best in this amazing McLaren Vale Merlot from the most intense vintage of recent times.
