2018 Pepper Tree Merlot Wrattonbully & Coonawarra – For thirty years Pepper Tree has been a beacon for quality wine in the heart of Hunter wine country. Founded in 1991 it continues to flourish as one of the stalwart wine companies of the region.
Pepper Tree started with a focus on grapes from the Hunter Valley but today the roots run deep for owner John Davis with vineyard sites in four premium wine growing regions across Australia.
Almost three decades on, Head Winemaker, Gwyn Olsen is making consistently great wines, drawing on these vineyards situated in the Hunter and Orange in NSW to prized patches of soil in Coonawarra and Wrattonbully in South Australia. You could say it’s the best of four worlds.
An enticing nose of dark plum and red fruits with a spicy lift. The rich, soft palate is rounded with sweet berry fruits and savoury spice. Balanced by subtle oak, the fine tannins provide good length for a silky finish.
