Anton Van Klopper Lucy M Merlot
Region: Adelaide Hills
Lucy M is the winemaking pseudonym of Anton Van Klopper, one of the pioneers of the natural wine movement in Australia, who crafts pure and expressive wines from his property in the Adelaide Hills. All wines are made with nothing added and nothing taken away, so no fining, filtration, sulphur or other additions.
Anton's Merlot is delightfully funky and wild yet still showing plenty of flavours more typical of Merlot - concentrated plum and spicy blackberry among them. It's structured and deep but with trademark Lucy M litheness.
