RESERVE MERLOT 2018
This wine is “world” good, it is as good as I have made as a single varietal from the vineyard and sums up just how well suited our site is for Merlot.
Gary Walsh from Winefront writes … “Two things of note: the fruit has an extra intensity and vigour this vintage, and there seems to be a little more oak showing than is usual. Crushed boysenberry, blackberry, raspberry, ginger and clove biscuit oak, some sage, violet, earth and lead pencil. It rolls out and thickens with time in glass, a wine of depth, gravel and earth, spicy oak in the mix, but freshness and brightness of fruit shines, and there’s a long and silty finish, all tannin, perfume and spice. It’s very good. Very. Time will be kind…” Rated: 95 Points
