94 Points / 5-Star Winery (Halliday)
Country of Origin: Australia
Type: Red wine
Grape variety: Merlot
Orange in NSW's Central West is renowned for its merlot and this one is outstanding, fruit forward,, juciy mouthfeel, smooth finish - and we can barely keep it in stock at this price
Unlike a lot of merlots, there is good aromatic intensity in a wine with plenty of character. Ripe fruit shows red berries, cassis, a hint of floral, almost turkish delight & subtle cedar from oak maturation. A firm structure with fine tannins carry the flavours through to the finish. The balance is spot-on allowing for immediate enjoyment. Distinctly varietal.
Enjoying wine is always better with good company.
