Only limited amounts of Merlot have been planted in the Hunter Valley as it can sometimes not easy to grow and can be inconsistent in quality from year to year. However, when the right conditions do occur, the Hunter can produce Merlot, which is rich in spicy plum flavours, with that typical earthy overtones. Ernest Hill Wines only produce Merlot when the conditions are the best.
The ‘Dam’ Merlot is a lighter, slightly sweeter style and will appeal to the wine drinker looking for a natural drinking smooth style of red wine.
