Groote Post Merlot Darling Hills, 2017

DARLING HILLS

Producer

Groote Post

Grape Variety

Merlot

Black fruits, mulberries, spices and savoury black olive aromas are all on show in Groote Post’s 2017 Merlot. The plate is firm and structured with more woody flavours emerging. 2017 produced a small crop of grapes which were selected on the sorting table then underwent a cold maceration for four days. This is a medium to full bodied Merlot which is concentrated and dense with a long bitter black liquorice finish. It has not yet reached its peak. After fermentation and 14 days on skins, the wine was matured in 300-litre French oak barrels with 35% new, 50% second fill and 15% third fill.
