Treasures Coonawarra Merlot 2019
Jam-packed Merlot from the famed Coonawarra wine region on Australia’s Limestone Coast.
Deep ruby/violet in appearance, this rich Merlot is packed with black berry, plum and cherry aromas, with savoury wafts of oak spice and smoked bacon. Sweet ripe berry fruits dominate the open, a concentrated wash of blackcurrant compote balanced by silky, savoury tannins, with hints of chocolate, coffee bean and vanilla.
Great on its own or superb with lentil and sausage casserole.
Coonawarra is one of Australia’s great wine regions, located in the heart of Australia’s Limestone Coast between Adelaide and Melbourne. The region is renowned for its terra rossa soil, a red clay produced by the weathering of limestone over many thousands of years and coloured by iron oxide, and for the outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot it produces.

Established in 2005 and based in the McPherson Ranges in rural New South Wales, John and Josephine Quarisa lease winery space and source fruit from various established regions throughout Australia to craft full-flavoured wines of excellent value. Australians of Italian heritage, their mottos ‘passion is everything’ and ‘never take life too seriously’ perfectly represents the attitude they have towards their venture and life in general.
A winemaker for over 30 years, during which time he has worked for some of the country’s largest and most well-known wineries including McWilliams, Casella and Nugan Estate, John has been awarded some of Australia’s greatest accolades including both the Jimmy Watson and Stodart Trophies. After becoming an International and Australian Wine Show Judge, John’s experience and passion drove him to develop a range of wines that reflected the attributes he loves in great wines; down to earth, full of character and approachable are words which describe both the winemaking style and the winemaker himself.
