2010 Gibson Reserve Merlot

Winemaking/Maturation:          Some 5 components were used in compiling this blend.

A multiplicity of combinations of extraction, oak, maceration

and sites were used. New French oak hogsheads were predominantly used for maturation.

 

Analysis:                                              Alcohol 14.9% : Acid 6.73 g/l : pH 3.64 :

 

Vintage Comments:                        A really good vintage of generally mild temperatures after a hot November. Generally fine through harvest with some showers in mid-March. Classic wines were made from Merlot .

 

Tasting Note:                                     Deep purple colour with red tones, intense complex aromas of sweet spices, wheat fields ,plums are followed by a richly flavoured finely

balanced savoury ,cherry like mid palate with chewy tannin and lingering anise & dark chocolate flavours which finish soft. Great structure to make this wine age & really develop its complexity.
