James Halliday describes him as 'impish' and 'exuberant' even. One look at that fine set of moustaches and you'll gather Geoff Merrill is no wallflower. His eponymous label has been delivering vinous greatness since 1980. His brand's icon is the scales of justice, his motto 'the perfect balance' and the wines, through elegance and a subtle – rather than showy – delivery of flavour, show a harmony and, yes, balance that can only come from great fruit, great sites and, as the Jimmy Watson trophy would suggest, great winemaking.
