2013 K Block Merlot

The K-Block Merlot thrived in 2013. 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.

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: 2013 was a warm vintage in the Yarra Valley, perfect for our Merlot.  Good sunshine and temperatures hovering in the mid to high twenties meant that we picked the Merlot earlier than ever before. Cool nights and mild days gave perfect ripening conditions, with the fruit in perfect condition at harvest.

GARY WALSH The Wine Front, 19 August 2015
Praise be! Now comes in a Bordeaux bottle. Good performer is TarraWarra Merlot. Also, that they grafted Pinot Noir over to Merlot gives me a kind of perverse pleasure. Lovely wine, big on charm and the finer details. Less of the plum and thunder, more to red fruits, cedar, tobacco, aniseed and vanilla. Medium bodied, fresh and crisp, redcurrant flavours, light fine grained, but persuasive tannin, the finish tending to freshness again, with good length.
