2012 Merlot

Ripe plum, red fruit and spicy oak. Dry, plush tannins that are well integrated with flavours of Satsuma plum, blackcurrant and choc-mint. Will age for 5 to 10 years if cellared appropriately.

Reviews

  • "Bright, deep, purple/red colour. The bouquet is dominated by high-quality cedary oak and blackcurrant fruit. There are some minty, crushed leaf, cabernet-like high notes. There seems to be some cabernet in this. An elegant, medium to full-bodied, brightly fruited wine with well-measured tannins which are ripe and not too firm. It’s on the cusp, though: you need to like firm Bordeaux styles, or else be prepared to cellar it a while (from 26-year-old-vines).”
