2019 Yellow Label Coonawarra Merlot
2022 Vintage Release
The Coonawarra wine region in South Australia is renowned for its terra rossa soil – a highly prized strip of land running 27km long, two kms wide and averaging 50cm deep. It compromises red soil over ancient limestone and offers the most distinctive unique terroir in the region. The highly acclaimed Evans Vineyard lies at the northern end of this famous strip of earth.
COLOUR Dark purple
NOSE Ripe red berry fruits, anise, rosemary and savoury notes.
PALATE Plum and ripe red berry fruits, black liquorice and complex spices give way to a firm tannin structure with overlaying notes of cedar, hints of mocha oak and ozone/seaspray on the finish. A tightly structured wine with a savoury tannin profile. History has shown that it will benefit from at least ten years of bottle maturation.
