The Back Deck Limestone Coast Merlot 2019

Limestone Coast

This dense, rich Merlot is unbeatable in terms of drinkability. It’s a careful blend of top grapes from some of South Australia’s finest ocean cooled vineyards, given a gentle infusion of oak. Dark, mouthfilling plum fruit with toasty vanilla length.

We reserve our Back Deck Merlot label for the best parcel of Merlot our Buyer, Dan, finds in South Australia – he's looking for a well balanced red with deep fruit, aromatics and a good bite of freshness too. In 2019, he was most impressed by a cuvée of Merlot from the Limestone Coast region. There vines receive full sunshine to ripen the grapes, as well as cooling ocean breezes. The result is deep plummy flavour, yet still with a lovely vibrancy. From the first vintage onwards this wine has been so smooth and full of juicy plum flavour that it was a top choice for winemakers to enjoy at the end of a hard day’s graft. On the back deck, hence the name. Really tasty with a spicy pork, minty lamb chops or a herby borlotti bean casserole.
