2017 Summerfield Pyrenees Merlot
In 1970 Ian Summerfield planted grape vines on the family property. Initially he sold the fruit off, then making wine under the family name, using contract winemakers. In 1999 son, Mark took over as full-time winemaker and Ian took a well-earned step back. He immediately stopped the use of American oak for French and reduced the alcohol of their wines. His is a full-bodied Merlot, full of elegance and black fruits.
