  • The Geoff Merrill wine making philosophy has been and always will be, to make wine that allows regional, varietal and vintage expression, without excessive winemaker intervention. Great wine is a matter of balance and Merrill's passion for subtle, elegant and harmonious flavours in wine is well documented.

    The Barrel Select Chardonnay is, as the name suggests, a carefully made selection of the best barrels from the vintage. It's the same process and rigour used for the Reserve Chardonnay, which sits on the shelf at double the price - this wine is a steal. A ripe and rich Chardonnay with lovely structure and balance.


    The aroma really leaps from the glass to display excellent French oak characters up front which slowly move aside revealing the depth of fruit beneath. Spice, straw and melon notes come through with hints of mandarin and orange pith. French oak fermentation and maturation has added complex notes of cream, toast and cashew. The wine instantly fills the palate with flavour. The mouthfeel is full and flavoursome, finishing clean and fruity with the overwhelming urge to try it again to recapture that initial generosity. A wonderful wine to drink young that will also become more complex as the wine develops over the next 5-8 years and greatly reward your patience.
