Miracle On The Wire Organic Merlot 2017

  • Certified Organic

On the nose there are gentle aromas of aniseed, raspberry, and some initial warmth. To taste there is generous red fruit, with hints of cherry, damson plum. A merlot with substance, there is a surprising charry fine tannin profile influenced by French oak. There is a soft mouthfeel and a lingering earthy finish to this impressive and surprising wine.

Tasting notes from the winery for Miracle On The Wire Organic Merlot 2017

Nature is a very curious and amazing thing and as vineyard owners in the Central Ranges wine district of New South Wales, we are constantly surprised how well our vines can perform in stressful conditions, with little to no rain. Miracle on the Wire refers to the tiny bunches of grapes that form on our vines each year, as well as to the sighting of the Blue Wren perched up on the wires of our Zeals Vineyard, as this is usually a sign of coming rain and good fortune.

The extensive vineyard is Certified Organic, and adopts natural, sustainable, farming practices to ensure vigorous growth of the grapevines. This wine is mid-weighted, displaying layers of mixed red fruits and spicy notes. The tannins are gentle and interwoven with subtle French oak characters. A vibrant wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to 3-5 years.

Bright and beautifully fruited, the wine shows ripe cherry, plum, anise and toasted nut characters on the nose, leading to a wonderfully rounded palate that’s supple and succulent. It’s silky and flavoursome, offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2025.
