Grape – Merlot

Fabio Ferracane
Camaleonte 2022

A breezy, 'all-in' kinda wine that serves as an approximation of Fabio's overall style. Named after the chameleon as the blend changes every year - it is a mix of everything to be found in the cellar. Fruity, fun and delicious, with unmistakable notes of salty red cherries, some great texture from the skin-contact elements and it just goes down so so easily. Sicilian sunshine from start to finish.

Vinyes Tortuga
Juicy 2021

As the name would suggest, this is an easy-drinking fruit-bomb red, made with Garnacha & Merlot and bottled with a little sugar remaining. This gives the cherry and watermelon notes a candied quality and a bit of a spritz without being properly sparkling. Great fun. Find out more.

La Vrille et le Papillon
Novemberlot NV

The Croziers always like to experiment each year, but Novemberlot is a real one-off. Following the frost of 2021, where many of the grapes were lost, inexplicably in November of the same year the vines had rarely-seen second budding, producing some small bunches of grapes. Seen by Meryl and Geraldine as a sort of consolation for the earlier losses, they were harvested and vinified, then blended with the rest of the 2021 Merlot from the first harvest. Find out more.

Lucy M.
Vino Rosso 2020

A wine that serves as something of a snapshot of the 2020 vintage, topping up a blend of Pinot Noir and Merlot with a little of all Anton's other reds. As usual the wine is the antithesis of the sometimes jammy, overripe Aussie style. Savoury and bright, this wine has lots of edge. Find out more.
