Down The Lane Merlot Durif Shiraz 750ml
40% Merlot, 31% Durif, 29% Shiraz.
South Eastern Australia
62% King Valley, 30% Riverina.
The King Valley experienced a mild growing season following timely spring rains. Near perfect growing conditions for full flavour development of the fruit. Grapes harvested late march. Whilst in the Riverina a wet winter and spring provided plenty of moisture for a good growing season. A dry and warm summer allowed for a slow ripening retaining lots of fruit and natural acidity.
Alc: 13.5%, pH:3.48, TA: 6.1g/L
