McLaren Vale’s warm days and cool nights allow Merlot to reach optimum ripeness, creating a smooth, mouth-filling wine with rich berry and plum flavours.
Fruit for the Dowie Doole Merlot is sourced from the cooler, sandy slopes of our Tintookie Vineyard and the loamy soils of the California Road vineyard. The combination of fruit from these two distinctively different vineyard sites brings savouriness and richness, with fine tannins complementing the classic Merlot aromas and flavours.
Colour: Brilliant crimson with a purple hue.
Nose: Bright red and blue fruit; raspberries, blueberries and plum. Hints of clove and cinnamon stick linger in the background. Subtle hints of oak; cedar, pencil shavings, further lift the fruit and spice.
Palate: The bright red fruits flow onto the palate giving the wine a juicy mouthfeel. The tannins are soft and balanced allowing the wines fruit to shine through, while still giving the wine structure and length. This balance of fruit, oak and tannin allow this wine to be enjoyed now or into the future.

Anderson Hill O Series 2018 Shiraz has taken out the ‘Best In Show’ at the world’s largest and most influential wine competition, the Decanter World Wine Awards!
The wine is dark in colour, with lots of episcopal purple; the aromas are bright, lifted and billowing, not just cherry-fresh but with some billowing cherry blossom in there too. In the mouth, the wine is deep, round, poised and lively: an explosion of vivid fruits with a peppery finish.” – Trophy & 97 Points Decanter DWWA 2020
Lifted red cherry, plum and fig are matched with florals and baking spices as well as hints of savoury, earthy notes. The palate features red cherry and cranberry notes which are framed with lovely natural acidity and long fine tannins. A beautifully textured wine with plush, persistent length.
