So remarkably articulate is the Merlot of Australia's west, that it drinks beautifully while young as a pure varietal wine. Moondah Brook are all about sourcing the fruit of mature vines and treating it to a minimalist style of vinification, to allow the Merlot to speak for itself. They retain vineyards up to thirty years of age and employ a combination of old and new world vinification techniques to preserve expression of fruit while enhancing complexity. A juicy, plum filled wine with velvety tannins, to match with venison and green peppercorn jus.
Managed since inaugural release by Western Australia's most eminent winemakers, Moondah Brook can count on the harvests of mature estate vineyards throughout the finer viticultural precincts of West Australia. Originally established at Gingin, just north of Perth in 1968, Moondah Brook today represent an accessible range of varietal wines which reflect strong regionality, through a philosophy of allowing the unique character of terroir and clime to express itself. Fruit is sourced from choice sites, trained to yield vintages of the finest Merlot. Following primary fermentation, Moondah Brook is treated to malolactic and maturation in a selection of oak barrels, to integrate complexity of fruit and soften the tannins.
TASTING NOTES
Great colour, youthful purple hues. Nose of red cherry, mulberries and plum, oaken spice, cinnamon and vanilla. A rich supple palate of red cherry and licorice plum flavours supported by firm tannins and framed by subtle cedary oak. A Merlot of good balance and an intensity of varietal fruit. Immediately approachable upon release, preferably alongside pork banners, veal culets or lamb.

About Moondah Brook Wines
The original Moondah Brook Estate was established in 1968, a 92 hectare property located at Gingin, north of Perth
The vineyard was established because of its unique climate. Sea breezes in the afternoon and gully winds of an evening assist with the reduction in temperatures at ripening time, allowing the wines to display great varietal character. Moondah Brook»
