Product information

This full-on Merlot packs a fruity punch of raspberry, cherry and plum flavours. Match up its velvety smooth nature with a tasty dish of red meat, pork and chicken.


More about this product;


Like your punnet after a long day out at your local 'pick your own', this bottle is packed with ready-to-drop raspberry, cherry and plum flavours. The juicy Merlot grapes in this wine give it a red berry and raspberry jam flavour, with a tickle of caramel, cinnamon and vanilla scent and a twist of oak.

Drink this ruby beauty now, or give it a couple of years to rest and it will come up with even more fruity flavours. It's also great with a meaty dish, so crack open a bottle if you're having a roast dinner, bangers and mash or meat pizza.

History
McGuigan Wines was established to celebrate the culmination of 3 generations of wine growing by the McGuigan family. Founder Brian McGuigan adopted the central symbol of the family crest, the lion, to reflect inspiration & the McGuigan's enduring spirit & passion for producing great quality Australian wine. Today Brian's brother, Neil McGuigan, is at the helm of McGuigan Wines & continues the proud family tradition. IWSC Winemaker of the Year-2009/11/12/16 & IWC White Winemaker of the Year-2009/12/13/19
Regional Information
The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed to varying sizes & styles of red fermenters where the fruit was fermented on oak at cooler temperatures of 18 - 22oC for 5 - 7 days. Fermenting at cooler temperatures allows the fruit flavours to be nurtured and enables retention of varietal characteristics. Post fermentation the majority of the wine is matured in stainless steel tanks with a percentage of the wine transferred onto French & American Oak.
Current Vintage
2018
Vinification Details
The fruit is selected from vineyards in the Riverland, Murray Darling & Limestone Coast regions. The climate is hot with high evaporation rates & generally low rainfall making irrigation essential. The climate is also continental, resulting in long sunny days and noticeably cooler nights. Modern viticultural & winemaking techniques mean that the climate can be seen as one of the region's strengths.
