We first produced a Merlot in 2004 which went on to win a string of awards including two trophies and 5 gold medals. Not surprisingly we sold out quickly!
Merlot grapes are grapes that when they are good they can make great wine.
Fortunately this happened in 2015 as our single vineyard Estate Merlot is a wine that is made to enjoy now, with all the elements in perfect balance. Generous and velvety, this Merlot displays rich cassis and blood plum flavours. A smooth finish with a hint of liquorice, spice and mocha. Silky tannins give this well-balanced Merlot a lovely roundness to the palate.
A wine that is all about class and made to enjoy now, Baddaginnie Run Estate Merlot is rapidly gathering a following.
