Merkel Wines

2015 Moscato

Made from the Italian Giallo clone, this wine has been made in a frizzanti style exhibiting a perfect balance of natural sweetness and acidity. The wine is floral, fruity and musky, whilst still maintaining its freshness through a zesty citrus palate.


2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Fermented in open-top puncheons using natural yeast. The wine then spends 28 days on skins before being pressed to barrel where it is able to rest during maturation. Cassis, dark berries and chocolate aromatics integrate into a savoury palate full of luscious fruit and soft tannins. Will reward careful cellaring up to 10 years.


2011 Quamby Quaffer

Has been made to enjoy on any occasion. 2011 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera. The dark berries of the Cabernet Sauvignon give the wine its body and structure, while the perfume and spice of the Barbera adds roundness and softness that makes for an easy drinking style.


2014 Gewurztraminer

Handpicked and fermented at low temperatures using natural yeast in stainless, and a portion in oak creating aromatics of lychees, rose petal and hints of spice. The oaked component gives the wine a more textural palate making it the ideal companion for Asian-inspired dishes. Will reward careful cellaring up to 5 years.


2013 Riesling

Handpicked and fermented at low temperatures using natural yeast creating a complex bouquet of honeysuckle, lemon blossom and citrus fruits.
