2011 K-Block Merlot

 

The K-Block Merlot thrived in 2011. The low yielding older vines produced beautiful, balanced fruit with true varietal expression.  The tannin structure found in the clone and the block give palate definition to the opulent fruit characters.

Vine age & features: Vertical shoot positioning. Grafted in 2006 onto 20 year old Pinot Noir MV6 rootstocks.

Site selection: A long north-west facing block with clay loam soils. The block has long produced grapes with subtle flavours and firm structure which is well suited to this clone of Merlot and the preferred style for TarraWarra Estate.

Vintage notes: The 2011 vintage was marked by a very cool summer, with well above average rainfall.  Milder conditions in Autumn allowed our later ripening red varieties to develop fully, although harvested a month later than in 2010.
