Pennys Hill Malpas Road Merlot CONFIRM VINTAGE

Merlot McLaren Vale South Australia
The Malpas family planted four scant acres of clone D3V14 Merlot vines to an auspicious block of dark, dry Bay of Biscay soils in 1991. The fissures which occur as the soils crack, sever the roots and diminish vigor in the vines, culminating in vintages of the extraordinary intensity and concentration of fruit. Bunches are destemmed, crushed and vinified on skins for a week, followed by a press into seasoned French oak for malolactic and eighteen months maturation. Bright cherry and blueberry fruit, red licorice and savoury spice, supple tannins and soft, lengthy finish.
