"The Whalebone Vineyard terroir exerts its strength across all four of the varieties grown there and Merlot develops the smokey Eucalyptus, anise and fresh earth aromas and flavours that are the signature of this distinguished site.
The Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard 2006 Merlot has the ripe plum and exotic spice of Merlot from the warm 2006 vintage.
The very sweet fruit middle palate is matched by a significant bulk of tannin providing a fine grained and savoury finish.
2006 is a vintage defined by its tannins. This is a rich and ripe wine, which will best accompany dishes based on braised ox cheeks or slow cooked veal shanks."
Provided the cellaring conditions are ideal (12ºC and 75-85% humidity) this wine is capable of ageing for at least 10 years
Matthew Jukes, 100 Best Australian Wines 2009, May 2009 “The two new red releases from the Whalebone Vineyard are of definite 100 Best standard. We have chosen to lead with the Merlot ahead of the Cabernet / Shiraz blend, it being the much more challenging wine to make. Stunningly proportioned and with not one ounce of unwanted power or alcohol, this wine is fast becoming a model to which all other Merlots in Australia need aspire.” Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2011, November 2010
