Does it get better than this - the great man of South Australia Geoff Merrill pumping out some brilliant value reds. 

This SMS made from Sangiovese, Merlot and Shiraz is a little quirky but you won't be sorry as it shows some seriously intense sweet mulberry fruit given a little savoury Italian style through the addition of some classy Sangivoese - a bargain Aussie blend.

How's it taste?

Rustic in style, lovely red fruits and spice showing some aged character. Nice lashings of quality oak.

Who made it?

Geoff Merrill has been making wines under his own label since 1980. He purchased the Mount Hurtle winery in 1985. The derelict building is now restored to its former glory and lies nestled in four acres of vineyard and garden with Tuscan inspired charm. The winery and 1500 square metre barrel hall completed in 1998 cope well with the rigours of modern winemaking. Geoff's winemaking philosophy is to make wine that allows regional, varietal and vintage expression without excessive winemaker intervention. Geoff specialises in shiraz and cabernet sauvignon and believes that great wine is a matter of balance. He strives for subtle, elegant and harmonious flavour, with an unwavering commitment to styles that can be enjoyed at table. Premium reds are released 3 years after harvest, while the reserve selection and Henley labels are held in the cellar for oak and bottle maturation for 5 years prior to release.
