Pertaringa Stage Left Merlot 2021


Named because Merlot has not enjoyed the centre stage (a nice way of saying that in McLaren Vale, this is the red-headed stepchild of grapes). A Bordeaux old timer, this is a serious example and suggests that perhaps it should get a little more attention, and not in a ‘Sideways’ way. Deep red in colour, this offers aromas ranging through plums, chocolate, warm earth, red fruits and more. There is fine focus here, right through to the silky tannins. The palate offers ripeness with plums and dark berries to the fore. An impressive Merlot and one which should give drinking pleasure for at least the next five years.
