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."
