Mérite Wines

South Australia | Wrattonbully

Our Review

Mérite Wines was established in 2000. It was the end of Mike Kloak and Colleen Miller’s protracted search for high-quality viticultural land, with a particular focus on the production of merlot utilising recently released clones that hold the promise of producing wine of a quality not previously seen. However, it’s not a case of all eggs in the same basket; malbec, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz have also been planted. It was not until ’13 that the first small amount of wine was made (most of the grapes were, and will continue to be, sold to other winemakers).
