A stylish and modern everyday table red that's sure to be very popular and reflects the winemaking skills of Warburn Estate and its precise understanding of Merlot.
Warburn Estate has more than 1,000 hectares under vines, and successfully brings together further fruit from a larger area of grape growing districts to blend into the handsomely flavoured Gossips Merlot. The ample family holdings have given winemaker Sam Trimboli an extremely competitive edge through tight control over grape quality that serves as the backbone for this multi regional red. Produced primarily from small parcels of vines throughout southeastern Australia, sourced from their own vineyards and selected growers.
Colour is a velvety medium red with bluish robes. An opulent nose of red berry fruits and quiet gentle spice. A rich, ripe and juicy palate of raspberry, plum fruit balanced by softly integrated oak. Complex flavours of sweet leather, mulberry, tobacco leaf and ripe berries lead into a smooth, warm finish. A wonderfully perfumed and flavoursome easy drinking red that's an ideal accompaniment to red meat dishes.
