Rochford Merlot 2022

RRP: $17.00
Tasting Notes: Notes of dark plum, olive tapenade, earth and licorice. The palate shows rich dark fruits of black cherry and blackcurrants with earthy tannins and some cacao.
Winemaking Notes: Our winemaking philosophy is to produce the best fruit possible in the vineyard and allow the wines to express the indiviuality of the vineyard and each growing seaon.
Vinification & Elevage: Fruit was destemmed as whole berries and fermented on skins for 14 days. Pressed to seasoned French oak puncheons for malolactic conversion, spending 11 months in oak prior to bottling.
Viticultural Notes: Yarra Valley Merlot from 2 vineyards in Gruyere and Seville.
The grapes for this wine were picked with viticultural practices based around maintaining balance in the vineyards, sustainability and responsiveness to changing environmental conditions.
2022 will be remembered for the tiniest yields in a decade resulting from poor flowering conditions in our parts of the Yarra Valley. The quality of the resultant wines of this vintage however are outstanding with both concentration and finesse.
