A legend, that is the only correct word for the striking winemaker Geoff Merrill. The vineyards can be found not far from Adelaide in McLaren Vale where a ridge and a cool sea breeze provide some relief. Geoff has special ideas of his own: he does not make his wines for the short term, but for the long term. He also does not shy away from aging in wood, as long as the wines can bear it. Also very remarkable is that Geoff lets his wines first drink before they appear on the market. For example, the reserve wines are only available 6 years after the harvest and the estate wines 3 years after the harvest. This is partly possible due to the presence of fine acids that give the wine a rich fruit structure and enhance the complexity. The Reserve Shiraz has received the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, Australia's highest honor for a Shiraz.

The Geoff Merrill is a full bodied, sturdy Australian Cabernet Sauvignon from a world famous winemaker. Thunderr ruby red colors the Geoff Merrill Cabertnet Sauvignon in the glass. The wine has a powerful nose with blackberries, black currant, mint, green pepper and a hint of olives. In the mouth firm tannins, a full body and a huge aftertaste.

Delicious with lamb shank, beef cheek and ribs, BBQ, chestnut mushrooms, lasagna and pizza.
