2019 Sevenhill Inigo Merlot Clare Valley – When indulged with close attention to moisture and grooming of its foliage, Merlot rewards the patience of this pampered care.
This wine is primarily from their Rosehill block on quarry road. These vines were planted in 2001 on a South-East sloping block of sandy red brown loam. The Merlot clone is D3V14. Harvest date was 19th March.
A deep red colour. The aroma is primarily fruit driven – plum, rhubarb and bramble, with a slight vanilla oak background. The palate is well structured with a core of plum sweetness surrounded by savoury acidity and tannin dryness. This wine is built for ageing though it is very drinkable now.
