“Planted to the Bordeaux-born 181 Merlot clone, the gravel loam soils of Ullingers Block 5 produce a single vineyard Merlot that is pretty and light on its feet. An agile and ethereal expression, but with no compromise on seriousness.”

Vineyard Notes
A tricky season commencing with early bud break and strong growth. A cool, wet November impacted fruit set, resulting in reduced yields. Early summer was hot and dry, but February brought more cool, wet conditions until some dry, warm March days which helped ripen the reds. Organic farming had the vineyard in terrific shape to deal with the season's challenges.
