From Kangaroo Island, this Merlot has impact and concentration reminisce of the Bordeaux style. Aromas of ripe plum, dried fruit, fig and raspberry follow on the palate with compact tannins, dark chocolate, deep blueberry flavours and core black fruits carrying through the back palate for a long finish. Excellent balance with core acidity and well integrated oak and grape tannins giving depth of flavour and structure that makes this wine framed for the long run. Best paired with blue cheese, roast beef or filet mignon.
In 1991, fifth – generation Islanders Michael and Rosie Florance joined with the Amadio Family to produce the first commercial Kangaroo Island wine, under the Kangaroo Island Trading Company brand. The vineyard located on Kangaroo Island’s Cygnet River has the perfect growing climate. When combined with careful land nurturing and Amadio winemaking expertise, exceptional wines are produced. The Kangaroo Island range showcases the exceptional depth of Island terroir whilst including generous fruit flavours. See more from our Kangaroo Island Trading Co. Range here.
