Arlewood Merlot - Margaret River Western Australia

Arlewood Merlot

The Arlewood Merlot 2011 ia a French-inspired classic from beautiful Margaret River region - where I was born!!

Garry produces miniscule amounts of Merlot that is rather European in style. Perhaps it’s because he’s of Italian heritage and his grandfather and great grandfather were winemakers … as well as barrel makers and coffin makers!

Merlot shines in the Margaret River, where it’s tempered by cool sea breezes and nourished by the purest rainfall carried on the winds from Antarctica.

Enticing aromas of cassis and violet with a background of classic Margaret River tobacco leaf and liquorice. Enjoy its smooth plum flavours with meaty sirloin steak on the BBQ
