Highland Heritage Estate Mt Canobolas Merlot is sourced from 100% cold climate fruit from Orange in the Central Tablelands of New South Wales Australia.
The wine is a vibrant dark plum red colour.
On the nose a subtle white pepper and spicy berry fruit bouquet is rich and dominant.
On the palate the lifted aromas follow through and complement the balanced structure of fine tannins, ripe berry flavours and a lean elegant finish. The fruit flavours fill the full length of the palate.
This medium to full bodied wine will cellar for at least 8 years under the right conditions and combines beautifully with lamb, mild curry dishes or our favourite, Osso Bucco!!
