Richland (NSW) 2018 Merlot

This is an instant stunner with its plum, dark berry fruit appeal but still emphasizing its cooler growing conditions by not exhibiting overly ripe or aggressive tannins. On the palate it has wonderful intensity with very careful handling of oak which allows its typical terroir and natural characters of the wine to come through.

This is an excellent partner for a Sunday roast or BBQ lamb. Drink now or cellar for the next 2-3 years.

Te Mata (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Coleraine Cabernet Merlot

Very limited stocks. Don't Miss Out.

5 Stars, 98/100 - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review
“An iconic brand meets a terrific vintage. The result is a “must have” wine for collectors and investors. This is elegance on a grand scale and one of the best vintages I’ve tasted.”

5 Stars, 100/100 - Sam Kim, Wine orbit

97/100 Cameron Douglas MS

Te Mata are calling this a  "fairytale vintage" showing both power and grace. Described as "Beauty and the Beast, capturing a new depth and power, with an exquisite perfume, and spellbinding enchantment."

Surely one for collectors, if you manage to get some.....

Midnight-dark ruby shimmers with a magenta edge. Coleraine ’19 is heralded by fragrant black roses, cherry, bramble, raspberry syrup and woodsmoke. A kiss of wild strawberry and dark chocolate transforms into a seductive palate laden with dark, ripe, forest berries. Majestic, velvet tannin entwines with the brightness and purity of classic Coleraine in a tale as old as time, creating captivating length and balance.

"New World Producer of the Year" - Sommelier Wine Awards (2016) 
"Chilean Producer of the Year" - International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) (2012, 2017)


Chilean Merlot had long been recognised as, great value, easy drinking, benchmark drinking. Terra Vega offers all of this and more...

Intense red color with violet tints. Presenting, aromas of fresh red fruits with soft notes of dried fruit. On the palate it has medium body, soft tannins and notes of dark fruit with a long persistence. Big fruit and full of flavour, yet lightly dances on the pallet.

Zilzie Selection 23 (Aus) 2019 Merlot

Exclusive Winery Clearance!

Dark berry fruits of the forest with velvety tannins and a touch of oak.

Merlot grapes from selected vineyards were harvested at optimum maturity to maximise varietal fruit flavours and supple tannins.

After primary fermentation the wines were soft pressed and underwent malolactic fermentation before being aged in French oak for six months before being blended and filtered prior to bottling.
