2018 Travis Tausend 'Sitting in a Tree' Merlot

Adelaide Hills, South Australia

A pretty light-hearted and fun Merlot with still maintaining decent structure. Fermented on skins for 3 weeks before pressing to tank using a bag press. Settled in tank and then racked to barrel for 12 months. A bit of cherry, vanilla and cedar on the nose, medium-bodied palate is full of raspberry, cherry, plum and vanilla flavours. Pair this with some herb roasted lamb or pastrami.

About the maker

Travis Tausend closed his prominent cafe in Adelaide to focus on minimal intervention wine back in 2015. Now, with organically sourced grapes, Travis is delivering delicious natural wines year in year out.

Travis embarked on his dream of becoming a wine maker, sourcing organic fruit and borrowing equipment to start the journey. Now in 2018 we see the progression to fully managing part of the vineyard in Hope Forest where he has been purchasing organic fruit since 2016 and his own winery shed to call home. For me Travis is making some of the most exciting wines in Australia and we are extremely proud to represent him.
