This is always one of the country’s better Merlots and this latest vintage is no exception. Opens with lovely soft fruitcake aromas, plum pudding notes, spices, cloves, leather – the aromatics are most impressive. Then supple, balanced and with good length too – delicious. A fine Merlot, which will drink beautifully over the next three to four years, and probably longer but no need. There are not many better value Merlots than this one.
