2009 Barossa Mail Box Reserve Merlot
Selected bunches of premium Merlot grapes from our Dennistone Vineyard were handpicked on 6th April 2009, destemed and fermented in open vats for 7 days, basket pressed, with malolactic fermentation in French oak barrique barrels for 73 days. This 2009 HARTZ BARN WINES Barossa Mail Box Reserve Merlot wine was racked and returned to French oak barriques to complete maturation before bottling on 16th August 2011.
A brooding bouquet of chocolate, spice, a hint of violets, and a concentrated palate of blackberry and plum combine the soft tannins to craft a smooth balanced Mail Box Reserve Merlot wine of distinction.
