Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

Merlesco combines fruit from two McLaren Vale sites. The McMurtrie Road property on the valley floor enjoys sunny days and cooling evening breezes from the nearby ocean. Primo's dry grown, shale strewn, Angel Gully in the subregion of Clarendon is the highest vineyard in McLaren Vale, where it enjoys a long, slow growing season with cool evenings and warm days. Harvesting Merlot throughout the chill of night and treating it to a cool fermentation keeps the grapes pristine for a wine that's rich, soft and full of juicy fruit. A regimen of light pumpovers adds extra colour, followed by gentle air bag pressing and four months spent softening in old oak barrels to keep the flavours fresh and young.
Bright purple red colour. Fresh blackberry, blueberries and cherry dominate the bouquet. Juicy young fruits of the forest flavours are balanced by good acidity and soft tannins. Delighfully fruit driven with less than a whisper of oak, this is not for the cellar. Merlesco has nailed the style in a deliciously refreshing and quaffable wine, an invigorating young red to be drunk chilled. It will taste even better served out of tumblers, alongside antipasto and pizzette.
