The Village Botanist Merlot 2017 (6 x 750mL) Langhorne Creek, SA.

Description:

Winemaker: Vanessa Altmann from Switch Organic Wine - Top 12 finalist in Young Gun of Wine 2017

Grown in Langhorne Creek, South Australia this wine shows bright fruit characters of cherry and raspberry, with soft gentle tannins. The wine has a delicious texture that finishes with a hint of earth typical of the region, and while Merlot has often been used for blending this wine reminds me of some of the best Pinot’s I’ve tasted, an elegant example of Merlot as a varietal. Picked during March 2017 the bunches were de-stemmed and crushed to allow fermentation on skins for around seven days, following pressing the wine was steeped in a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon skins for around four days to build complexity and palate weight, while still remaining true to Merlot style.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The meeting of variety, season and maker. The Village Botanist range of wines are a celebration of the pull to make artisan wine.

Chardonnay, Pinot and Shiraz are amongst those that we love to create. Each year it begins as we wander down rows and think about what might be. With fresh dew settled on berries a few months have passed, then colour on bunches and excitement, before we know it harvest is here.Buckets at the ready, thrown towards friends with long picnic lunches among the vines, then back to the winery for the thrill of the plunge.

We seek organically grown parcels and work with our growers and friends who understand that outstanding wines come not only from great vineyards, but from people who love what they do.
