Church Road ONE Merlot 2019

"One vineyard, one craftsman, one wine."

This is serious Merlot with a core of brooding, dark, plummy fruit, subtle violet and flowering thyme aromas and a hint of graphite, all supported by balanced oak bringing cedar, spice and smoke notes.

A full, supple mid palate leads into a powerful finish with firm but fine-grained tannin driving great length and back palate presence.

With careful cellaring, we expect this wine will age gracefully for 15 years or more.

The ONE range by Church Road is a series of elegant wines produced by one winemaker from one vineyard.
