Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by Accolade Wines. Short Mile Bay Merlot, South Eastern Australia is a flavourful wine, made from Merlot grapes.

Merlot produces medium bodied, fleshy, juicy wines with round tannins. Often seen as a single varietal, or in a blend with Cabernet Sauvignon to take the hard edges off. Its grown all over the world and commercially one of the most important red grapes in the on-trade.
Australia is at the start of an exciting wine journey. Having been a successful wine growing country with their classic punchy style, we are now seeing more experimentation and diversity, and it's for the better.Explore Australia
