Gioiello Old House Merlot 2018


From the Goulburn region, the grapes were de-stemmed and crushed into open-top fermenters, before a gentle pressing into French oak for maturation for 18 months, one-third of the barrels were new. The colour of the wine is a gentle red paired with a classic Merlot nose of plum pudding notes, spices, florals, soy and plums. Oak is evident but well integrated with a layered, supple texture and an attractive undercurrent of acidity. Impressive intensity and very good length, drink now and over the next four to six years.

Variety: Red Wine, Merlot
