WINEMAKING NOTES

Manjimup often has the coldest maximum temperature in Western Australia. The long, and relatively cool growing season, and the fertile jarrah and karri loam soils create the terroir which is perfect for growing intensely flavoursome grapes. Chestnut Grove is a family owned and operated vineyard, and we take great pride in turning these grapes into wines of distinction in our Winery on the estate. Low yielding vines grown in the gravelly loam soils on the Chestnut Grove estate provides quality parcels of Merlot grown in ideal temperate ripening conditions.

FOOD PAIRING

Delicious with all things Italian, pizza, meatballs and pasta! Also great with most meats just add a hint of roseamry, thyme or oregano!

TASTING NOTES

Forest fruits, dark mulberries, black cherry, cassis liqueur, raspberry conserve and dusty earthy complexity offer perfect varietal character of Merlot. Concentrated mid-palate sweetness and brooding fruit depth, harnessed by savoury spicy French oak tannins. Overall, a beautiful medium bodied wine with cellaring potential. 14.5% Alcohol
