Merlot Coonawarra South Australia
Established by industry doyen Len Evans, the Petaluma vineyards are at the very heart of Coonawarra, invaluable winegrowing terroirs which are infused by the mineral rich terra rosa soils and stimulated by the balmy maritime breezes of the Southern Ocean. A fully Certified Organic Shiraz, picked off vines which have been husbanded to a holistic, environmentally sustainable viticulture, spicy, brooding and engagingly aromatic, a long dry red with elegant velvet tannins, peppery plum fruit characters and piquantly perfumed, cool Coonawarra finish.
Deep garnet red. Perfumed with black fruits, currants and plums, seasoned by trade spice and fragrant white pepper notes. Dark chocolate assortments, black cherries and soused fruits, double dipped plum and curls of delicate cinnamon oak over an abundant length of soft, sandy ripe tannins, all framing the wine to its lasting, velvet finish.
