A mid bodied slurrppparble red from outside of the Mornington Box.

From the Producer:

"Merlot underwent carbonic maceration due to 2 factors: 1. we wanted to increase the fruity characteristic of the wine and soften the tannin, and 2. we only had one fermentation vessel so had to hold it until the shiraz was picked 7 days later. When the shiraz arrived, grapes were destemmed separately and layered in an open top fermenter and left to cold soak on skins for 3 days. 

Inoculated after this with twice daily pump overs for the first 5 days and then gently plunged for the last 8 days of fermentation. Once dry, racked to 3rd and 4th use barrels for 8 months until finally being bottled. 

Vegan with no fining and minor filtering at bottling. "
