Curtis Heritage Merlot 2020


Deep blood red in colour, this offers lifted aromatics. This is a good fist of a richly flavoured Merlot, lots of flavour and enjoyable drinking, which is something that is not always that easy to achieve with this variety in Australia with notes of plums and cherries. There is a pleasing hint of mocha here, with coffee grind notes too. A soft texture, but there is also a line of crunchy acidity running the length plus good focus. Drink now for four to five years and this certainly has room to improve further over that time.

Variety: Red Wine, Merlot
