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":"2023-02-11T15:37:53-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Australia","Other_Wine","Producer_Geoff Merrill","Region_McLaren Vale","RK1002","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Syrah\/Shiraz"],"price":169899,"price_min":169899,"price_max":169899,"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":42776060362890,"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 Shiraz (Double Magnum)","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":169899,"weight":48988,"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\/21_90d24fb4-e767-41e4-ae33-4739a85b4ec8.png?v=1676147924"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/21_90d24fb4-e767-41e4-ae33-4739a85b4ec8.png?v=1676147924","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1995 | Geoff Merrill | Reserve Shiraz (Double Magnum) at CaskCartel.com","id":24216715001994,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.371,"height":345,"width":128,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/21_90d24fb4-e767-41e4-ae33-4739a85b4ec8.png?v=1676147924"},"aspect_ratio":0.371,"height":345,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/21_90d24fb4-e767-41e4-ae33-4739a85b4ec8.png?v=1676147924","width":128}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 1995 | Geoff Merrill | Reserve Shiraz (Double Magnum)\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe palate is smooth, rich and powerful with great flavour and length.\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 3L\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 Syrah \/ Shiraz\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\u003eThe aroma is a Shiraz dream, with wonderous aromas of rich fruit, earth, spice and oak.
