Geoff Merrill Pimpala Vineyard Cabernet Merlot

Bright aromas of dark fruits, chocolate and mint continue onto the palate. Full-bodied with firm tannins and well-integrated oak from time in French and American oak. Juicy, well-structured and loaded with flavour this wine is a great bargain. This exclusive, small batch range pay homage to the beautiful old vineyards that are the centrepiece of our home, the famous heritage listed Mount Hurtle winery. Established in the late 1800s, Mount Hurtle has been our home since the early 1980s. - Geoff Merrill Geoff Merrill has been making wines under his own label since 1980. He purchased the Mount Hurtle winery in 1985. The derelict building is now restored to its former glory and lies nestled in four acres of vineyard and garden with Tuscan inspired charm. The winery and 1500 square metre barrel hall completed in 1998 cope well with the rigours of modern winemaking. Geoff's winemaking philosophy is to make wine that allows regional, varietal and vintage expression without excessive winemaker intervention. Geoff specialises in shiraz and cabernet sauvignon and believes that great wine is a matter of balance. He strives for subtle, elegant and harmonious flavour, with an unwavering commitment to styles that can be enjoyed at table. Premium reds are released 3 years after harvest, while the reserve selection and Henley labels are held in the cellar for oak and bottle maturation for 5 years prior to release.
