My Darling Merlot is an endearing homage to Rob Gibson’s wife, Anne.

The fruit for this 'labour of love' was sourced from our estate vineyard in Light Pass. This vineyard is planted to the ‘Gibson-Schulz Trellis’ system - a unique method of training vines, co-invented by Rob. Vines are alternately planted on a low and high cordon wire, the latter reaching over two metres in height.

The wine shows fragrant aromas of black cherry, mulberry, blackberry bush, crushed herbs and allspice. Whilst complex flavours of red and black cherry, blackberry bush and vanillan spice are all evident in the 2022 My Darling, Rob’s description of the Merlot variety is eloquently put. “At one moment soft and tender, the next firm and reassuring.” Although we're all well aware of his love of Merlot, we can’t help but feel this is also Rob’s way of subtly describing the true darling in his life.

Gibson My Darling Merlot pairs beautifully with grilled meats such as beef, pork & lamb. You and your darling can also enjoy a glass with your favourite cheddar or blue cheese.

Tasting Notes

Garnet with red hue. Lifted aromas of black cherry, mulberry, blackberry bush, crushed herbs and allspice fill the glass. Medium-bodied in style with complex flavours of red and black cherry, blackberry bush, vanillan spice and a gentle dusting of dried herbs, closing with very fine, savoury tannins
