TWOEIGHTS
2006 YARRA VALLEY MERLOT

This Two Eights Merlot is deep ruby red in colour and spicy with hints of licorice and plum fruits. It has a tight juicy palate, very full in the mouth with firm ripe tannins, good persistence in fruit flavour and great length. The oak is well integrated and balanced.


Yarra Valley’s growing and ripening season was mild and dry however January and February had some extremely high temperatures resulting in the vintage starting 3 weeks earlier than normal. This greatly enhanced ripening and flavour development with this Merlot showing intense flavour and tannin ripeness. Drink now or age for 7-12 years.
