2015 K Block Merlot

$45.00

The K Block Merlot has garnered a strong following since it’s first release in 2008. 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.

Vintage notes

2015 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.

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.

“Miris baruta opija me kao hasis, Dok vozim te brzo bebi nemoj da se plasis, Ja zivim zivot svakog dana ko da mi je zadnji, Deca smo napustena, snova mi smo gladni. Ne nije mi zao, Sto dusu sam dao, Ja ukrascu od zivota, sve sto mi je krao.”
