Dutschke 80 Block Merlot 2017

Incl. tax

The 2017 Vintage brings our 7th release of Merlot. Typically harvested a little later than Shiraz, the 2017 Vintage was a little unusual with the Merlot ripening a week or so ahead of the Shiraz.

Great depth of flavour and colour was achieved with the cooler year. The 80 Block Merlot from the St Jakobi vineyard again produced a wine that we are proud of. Full in flavour with generous red berry fruits on the palate and nose. Good acid and tannin balance will to allow this wine to age gracefully for many years to come.

We trust you’ll enjoy it!
