Pertaringa Stage Left Merlot 2023


For the Merlot fans amongst us, this wine is proving itself to be a most reliable offering, year after year. From a single block in the Tatachilla sub-region of McLaren Vale, planted in 1990, the wine spent eight days on skins, followed by maturation in older French oak for ten months. Dark red/maroon in colour, the nose offers dried herbs, plums, bay leaves, plum pudding, red cherries with hints of vanilla and nutmeg. Silky tannins and good length here, this will provide pleasure for at least the next three to four years.

Variety: Red Wine, Merlot
