It's no easy feat, but the cool climate region of Mt Benson on the Limestone Coast is rivaling the Coonawarra in terms of uniqueness. This excellent Merlot is crafted from grapes planted on the legendary "terra rossa" soil that was originally populated with black wattles trees. The palate of concentrated mulberry and herbal fruit is layered with spices and fine chocolate characters, with solid yet well balanced tannins. A fine acidity gives roundness and this excellent Merlot can stand proud among Australia's best.
