The K-Block Merlot thrived in 2010. The low yielding older vines produced beautiful, balanced fruit with true varietal expression. The tannin structure found in the clone and the block give palate definition to the opulent fruit characters.
Close to a perfect vintage, 2010 presented an ideal summer for grape development, with warm days and cool nights. Rainfall during mid-spring meant there was minimal irrigation required and next to no disease pressure.
A long north-west facing block with clay loam soils. The block has long produced grapes with subtle flavours and firm structure which is well suited to this clone of Merlot and the preferred style for TarraWarra Estate.
