Food Pairings for Trentham Estate Merlot
Almost half a century ago, the first vines were planted at Trentham Cliffs in far west New South Wales. Trentham Estate is part of the former sheep station called 'Trentham Cliffs' which was settled in the 1930's by the Chanter family. In 1948-49 the riverfront was developed into horticultural properties, and so began the settlement of Trentham Cliffs. Trentham Estate is a small boutique winery specialising in varietal grape growing and production, situated on the New South Wales side of the Murray River, some 15km from Mildura. The Murphy family were pioneers who first established vineyards at Merbein in the Sunraysia area in 1909. John Murphy, who bought Trentham Estate, died in 1997 leaving his sons Patrick and Anthony as the Estate's viticulturist and chief winemaker. Each brother is an expert in his particular field. The 2007 vintage was produced some outstanding wines and this Merlot is certainly with this group. It shows dark red colours with aromas of ripe berries and a hint of toasty French oak. The palate is soft and full with sweet fruit flavours balanced by fine grained tannins. This Merlot's softness allows it to be served with many foods. ideal for roast lamb or beef, duck or quail, pasta dishes or creamy cheeses.
