Woodgate 2011 Merlot Manjimup Region Western Australia

The wine make says: The Woodgate  2011 Merlot  brings a more structured body to Merlot. With a small amount of Cabernet, and a deep red colour, fruit characters of ripe plums and berry fruits lead to hints of chocolate, spice and cedar.

A refined elegant finish brings it all into focus.

Cellar: 4 – 6 years.

Ray Jordan of The West Australian Wine Guide says:

"Plenty of promise here. An extra year in the bottle has added a degree of richness to the mid palate."
