It is best known for Shiraz from the former plus Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon from the latter. The range also includes Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot and Southern Rhône-style blends partnering Syrah with Grenache and Mourvedre. Varietal Sangiovese and Riesling wines also feature. Merrill began his career in wine at the age of 17 in 1964 when he started a four-year traineeship at Seppelts in the Barossa. After a spell in Stellenbosch, South Africa, he joined Chateau Reynella in McLaren Vale in late 1975, becoming Senior Winemaker two years later and holding the position until 1985. He then worked as Consultant Winemaker for the property's owner, Thomas Hardy \u0026amp; Sons. Merrill is strongly associated with an heroic, luxuriant moustache, occasionally reaching full Merv Hughes handlebar proportions. In recent years this seems to have sadly succumbed to beard sprawl.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-13T18:55:12-04:00","created_at":"2023-02-11T15:36:38-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Australia","Other_Wine","Producer_Geoff Merrill","Region_McLaren Vale","RK1002","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Red Wine","varietal_cabernet sauvignon"],"price":259899,"price_min":259899,"price_max":259899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42776060002442,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1995 | Geoff Merrill | Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 6L","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":259899,"weight":97976,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/20_88579e6c-0e29-4da2-a70f-c4ff18a6684a.png?v=1676147841"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/20_88579e6c-0e29-4da2-a70f-c4ff18a6684a.png?v=1676147841","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1995 | Geoff Merrill | Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 6L at CaskCartel.com","id":24216710480010,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.354,"height":347,"width":123,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/20_88579e6c-0e29-4da2-a70f-c4ff18a6684a.png?v=1676147841"},"aspect_ratio":0.354,"height":347,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/20_88579e6c-0e29-4da2-a70f-c4ff18a6684a.png?v=1676147841","width":123}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 1995 | Geoff Merrill | Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 6L\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eDark fruits, ripe tannins and ample acidity blend seamlessly with oak to complete this great example of a top end Cabernet.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Geoff Merrill\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan color=\"#ff2a00\" style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eJS\u003c\/span\u003e | 91\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e1995\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 6L\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 14.5%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Cabernet Sauvignon\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Australia, McLaren Vale\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eDark fruits, ripe tannins and ample acidity blend seamlessly with oak to complete this great example of a top end Cabernet.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003e\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #222223;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #222223;\"\u003eReviews:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #222223;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #222223;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #9f250d;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #9f250d;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eJames Suckling:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e Layered, lovely and admired by all, including Geoff, for its big, open bouquet of black and red berries, chocolate and a cool menthol-eucalyptus note.
