Kies Family Deer Stalker Merlot 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Deer Stalker Merlot is a soft red with very light tannins and a hint of sweetness on the finish. A great summer drink, it can be chilled according to taste. It is made from 100% Merlot fruit from young vines and represents a unique style in the Barossa Valley. The nose displays a heady mix of rich ripe strawberry, raspberry and cherry. Very smooth on the palate with nice warmth. An easy-drinker that is best-drunk while young.

The Kies family arrived from Silesia in 1857 and has been growing grapes in the utopian hamlet of Lyndoch ever since. In the 1980s the family opened their winery cellar door at the entrance to the Barossa, just north of Lyndoch, and has since been a place where the European traditions of open door welcomes and hearty laughs have reverberated. Now fifth generation hosts Michael and Tina Kies have expanded the small ironstone cottage cellar door to include a café, tea centre and function area, providing a one-stop destination for Barossa visitors.

We found this on a wine tour 2 years ago. Since then we've also had a case delivered home in Melbourne. Great wine.

My Son is drinking this now in Oz and is so impressed he's phoning me in England to tell me to find and try some over here! And that's the 2010 vintage he's drinking!
