This Merlot is a cut above most, the quality of fruit really shows here and the resulting wine means this is merlot will reward those who even enjoy their reds from the right bank in Bordeaux. Intense garnet red, with a fresh nose of black cherries, plum, eucalyptus and nutmeg. The palate is juicy, rich and well structured, there are gentle tannins which melt away with food and a finish of blackberries and chocolate.
