Black Olive Merlot 2006 Barossa Valley

Black Olive Merlot 2006

Our Merlot runs from row 1 to row 29 which sits on the bottom end of our vineyard and in the centre of this block we have a number of gum trees. In particular there is an old Black Olive tree which each year yields an excellent extra virgin oil with a beautiful aroma and soft texture. Because of this unique situation we feel it's appropriate to name our unique style of Merlot, Black Olive. Fruit sourced from our vineyard in Lyndoch, Barossa Valley. 100% Merlot.

Fruit: Sourced from our own vineyard in Lyndoch, Barossa.

Colour: Deep Ruby Red, Brilliant and Elegant

Nose: Fruity and Complex, Spicy with hints of Raspberry, Blackcurrant and plum.

Palate: Full Bodied, with rich Plum, Black Berry flavours and hint of Spices, great length with lingering Ripened Wild Berries to finish.

Comments:

Once again our small patch of Merlot has produced an outstanding fruit to provide our "AFFEZIONATI" a Merlot that is rich in colour, nose and palate, displaying complexity and excellent fruity flavours with a touch of spice. A well balanced and elegant wine that can be enjoyed now and in years to come.
