MRLO is a wine that aims to change some of the preconceptions of Australian Merlot. This McLaren Vale grown fruit is fermented wild in clay amphora, settled, then aged in amphora for a further nine months. Brad also makes the addition of 10% Nero d'Avola for an extra bit of pep and funk turning this often maligned variety into something pretty unique. It's not just creatively put together, it's also undeniably delicious. It's quite exciting to see Merlot so perfumed, so energetic and so more-ish. Only 200 dozen made.

What it Tastes Like

Really leaps out of the glass with an evocative perfume of plums, blackberries and subtle herbs and spices. The palate is plush with the variety's typical ripe fruit profile but the Nero clearly adds a dimension which is so much fresher, livelier and more savoury than many Australian Merlots. What fun!
