It’s plummy with liquered edges, mint and some chocolate custard oak. Plenty of sweet fruit and a surprising fleshiness. There is a present acidity, but no harsh bite. There's lots of woody, grainy tannin structure that mould into a solid wine with a good flavour.
From the Winery
Early winter in 2014 was wetter than usual and the period from August to early January was very dry with above average temperatures. Following some rain and milder temperatures in January, the 2015 harvest started later that month and was quite condensed, resulting in some fabulous white and red wines.
This wine is called Stage Left Merlot as the variety has never been centre stage in the vineyard theatre of McLaren Vale. We think that it should be enjoyed for its unique interpretation of this beloved Bordeaux variety.
