The Barossa Valley is home to Australia’s most celebrated reds. And it’s in the Eden Valley (a super-premium district within Barossa) that you’ll find the finest Merlot in the country.
This delicious new exclusive is a pure Merlot from a James Halliday 5-Star estate (the preeminent Aussie critic’s highest rating). The innovative winemaking team – aka ‘the Freewheeling Few’ – sourced the fruit from top Eden Valley sites (and beyond) in the 2015 vintage, where “Australian wineries reported outstanding wines,” though in “small quantities” (Wine Spectator).
Look forward to layers of juicy plum and red currant, plus silky-smooth tannins, thanks to time spent mellowing in oak. The complex aromas and flavors will continue to develop for another six to eight years … but it may be difficult to wait that long. Whenever you decide to enjoy it, we recommend serving it with lamb chops or roast duck.
Hurry for your taste of this age-worthy discovery.
