Fruit driven, high altitude Merlot in all its splendor, grown to reclaimed tobacco country, as fashioned by a team that has stewarded their vineyards from infancy. Trials with different clones, the continual search for the perfect oak to suit each vineyard parcel, and the team's passion for contemporary styles, are all keystones to ensuring Pizzini remain a leader in the production of fine high country Merlot. A gentle red wine that's wonderful with food, well supported by smooth, soft tannins and gentle oak, finishing with a juicy, fruit filled crunch.
Vineyards at Pizzini are researched and operated with a great emphasis placed on clonal management regimes and vine trellising. The aim is to strike better balance between number of vines per hectare, type of trellising, soil types and land aspect so that the vineyard is better able to produce quality fruit with a concentration of flavour. Vines are planted to the gentle undulating slopes of King Valley as well as the second terrace flats leading down to King River. The relationship between Merlot, climate and conditions of the vineyard are very complex, Pizzini have found the right combination and have honed their vines to produce a mouthfilling Tuscan style of Merlot.
TASTING NOTES
Rich plum red in colour. The nose has lovely hints of plums and savoury spice, mulberries and anise with leather notes and earthy undertones, evolving fragrances of dried herbs and dark chocolate. The palate is soft, round and very generous. Tightly structured with good length on the back palate and a fleshy, juicy middle. A rich, round but firm tannin structure, good oak and finally, excellent length towards the finish.

About Pizzini Winery
June 1955 Roberto and Rosa Pizzini, their three children, Elena, Rinaldo, Alfredo and a baby on the way, embarked on a journey from Trento Alto Aldige in the Italian Alps for a new life in Australia
The four brothers and their families continued to grow tobacco together and progressively grew their business to eventually become the largest tobacco producing company in the southern hemisphere, which at one point was able to employ and support seventeen share farmers as well as the four brother's families.
