Peccavi 'The Estate' Merlot 2018

Award Winner

Creating the perfect Australian Merlot is no mean feat. This stunning wine, developed and handcrafted by Jeremy Muller and Stuart Watson is made from vines grafted, on Peccavi Estate in 2010, with the 181 clones used by the Premier Grand Crus in Bordeaux. 

The Peccavi 'The Estate' Merlot is handpicked and handmade on-site in small batches, with the finesse of old-world craftsmanship and new-world equipment. The grapes are then meticulously hand-plunged every six hours or softly pumped over before maturing in the finest French oak barrels for two years, to produce a Merlot in the style of the garargiste movement on the right bank of Bordeaux.  

We believe we are the only producers making a merlot in this style, in Australia, and it ensures this wine is the pinnacle of Australian Merlot.

This Merlot offers aromas of black cherries and chocolate with hints of oak and dried herbs. Full to medium-bodied wine, it provides a long, elegant and silky texture with deep flavours of plums, berries, oak and earthly herbs.

Our Estate Merlot is the epitome of Peccavi; hand-sorted at a meticulous quarter tonne an hour into open top fermenters and hand plunged every six hours for the following three weeks. The wine then spent two years developing in the finest French oak and is ready for your enjoyment, now and for many years to come.
