2014 K Block Merlot

The K Block Merlot has garnered a strong following since it’s first release in 2008. The low yielding older vines produced beautiful, balanaced 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: 2014 was an excellent vintage in the Yarra Valley. Ideal conditions persisted throughout the growing season, with temperatures hovering in the mid to high twenties from veraison to harvest. Cool nights and mild days gave perfect ripening conditions, with the fruit in perfect condition at harvest.

This Yarra Valley site continues to deliver merlots that are a clear cut above the average. The fact merlot continues to struggle for recognition hasn't dampened winemaker Clare Halloran's enthusiasm for the variety. Rich, opulent and balanced flavours point to a super merlot experience.
