Windfall Wine Estate Ivor Reserve Merlot 2014
96pts for this "utterly delicious" (Halliday) Merlot from WA's beautiful Geographe region
Following a win in lotto, Julie and Phil Hutton planted Windfall Vineyard on the banks of the Preston River in WA’s beautiful Geographe region. As Julie says, “We’re probably the only people around who managed to turn a windfall into a way to work harder!” Over the last twenty-two years, Julie and Phil have tended and nurtured their vineyard, and for the last seven years have followed the principles of biodynamic farming, believing in its positive influence and important philosophy. They balance elegance, depth and complexity to allow the true characters of the variety to shine. “This is an utterly delicious, elegant and supple merlot, the bright, clear colour an early signal of the quality of the wine.It fills the mouth gently with red fruit flavours, sending signals to the brain ‘don’t spit this out, it’s too lovely’ ... 96pts” (Halliday).
