Tom mcdonald (1907-1987) devoted his lifetime to producing outstanding new zealand wines at the site of the current church road winery. Celebrating tom's vision and entrepreneurial spirit, church road mcdonald series wines are complex, textural and full of character. The church road mcdonald series merlot was crafted from predominantly hand-harvested fruit grown on warm, low vigour gravel soils. It was fermented in a combination of french oak cuves and 70 year old concrete fermenters, before draining and pressing to barrel for 21 months extended maturation.
