Perfect Conditions For Merlot

Whilst the conditions suit the cultivation of many different varietals, Merlot really shines in Gimblett Gravels. As such,  this is the most widely planted red grape at the Pask site. We've included Pask's Merlot as part of a blend in past Wine Club cases, but I though it was about time we showed it off as a single varietal. It's just a cracking wine that has bags of complex and deep flavour, I really hope you enjoy it.
