I haven’t seen a 100% Merlot for a little while and this was a nice surprise. Bright ruby colour with pretty, ripe plum flavours in a more medium bodied style. Powdery fine tannins offer structure and grip on the palate, whilst the bottle age adds savoury notes with freshness from a herbal lift. I like that this is a lighter, fresher style that is super savoury. This is my pick of the reds – drink with food.
