92 Points James Halliday

Medium red-purple; the bouquet is clean and fresh, with excellent fruit and oak balance and integration, something missing from so many Merlots. The palate is fine, supple, elegant and long, with a mix of savoury/earthy and cassis fruit, finishing with persistent tannins which do dry out the finish ever so slightly. Drink to 2012.

Brian Croser established Petaluma in 1976 to make world class wines from the classic varieties by choosing the best region for each variety and acquiring or planting the best vineyard site in that region. Over the past 3 decades these vineyards have been nurtured to allow the site and variety to fully express their individual pedigrees. Petaluma has maintained an uncompromising approach to each aspect of viticulture and winemaking for over a quarter of a century.

Today winemaker Andrew Hardy firmly adheres to the tenet that if the vineyards are great, and the winemaking responsive, the wines will be outstanding. Indeed, Andrew sees his role as custodian of the vineyards.

The Petaluma Merlot hails from the acclaimed Evans Vineyard in Coonawarra.
