The K Block Merlot has garnered a strong following since it’s first release in 2008. The low yielding older vines produced beautiful, balanaced fruit with true varietal expression.
The tannin structure found in the clone and the block give palate definition to the opulent fruit characters.
2014 was an excellent vintage in the Yarra Valley. Ideal conditions persisted throughout the growing season, with temperatures hovering in the mid to high twenties from veraison to harvest. Cool nights and mild days gave perfect ripening conditions, with the fruit in perfect condition at harvest.
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.
