Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Merlot, 2006

The two new red releases from the Whalebone Vineyard are of definite 100 Best standard. We have chosen to lead with the Merlot ahead of the Cabernet / Shiraz blend, it being the much more challenging wine to make. Stunningly proportioned and with not one ounce of unwanted power or alcohol, this wine is fast becoming a model to which all other Merlots in Australia need aspire.

Don't miss out on the next vintage of Tapanappa Chardonnays again!
