Kingston Estate Merlot 2018

Coonawarra, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14%
The Kingston Estate range of single varietal wines are crafted to display distinctive varietal character through careful region selection. The best characteristics of one or more regions, often a combination of warm and cool climate, are matched and blended to provide the perfect synergy of regional definition and varietal integrity. This 2018 Kingston Estate Merlot is another great value offering from Kingston Estate and one of the more impressive bargain Australian Merlots currently on the market.

"The cool ripening conditions of Mount Benson provide varietal elegance while the Clare Valley warmth adds plum and berry richness. Our dual region merlot is balanced perfectly with velvety soft oak tannins. Fresh raspberry and violet aromas entice and deliver with a smooth abundance of berries and plum fruit, beautifully completed by a lifted floral spice finish. Best enjoyed with your favourite pasta, lamb casserole or roasted poultry." - Kingston Estate.

Since the late 1950s, the Moularadellis family have been in Australia's wine industry, first as grape growers and then winemakers. Their move to winemaking began in 1985 when their son Bill Moularadellis formally started Kingston Estate Wines after completing his oenology studies. In that first vintage Bill, with the help of his parents, crushed just 60 tonnes of fruit and Kingston Estate was born.

The Kingston Estate winemaking philosophy is to source the best wine parcels from the best South Australian regions to deliver true varietal flavour, rather than blending varieties. Throughout both ranges this could entail the selection of one or more regions to ensure the best possible example for that variety and its regional characteristics for that vintage.

The cool climate Limestone Coast provides varietal elegance while the warm Clare Valley adds sweet cherry and raspberry fruits. The soft integrated tannins in our dual region Merlot are balanced with velvety, vanillin oak.
