Jam-packed Merlot from the famed Coonawarra wine region on Australia’s Limestone Coast.
Deep ruby/violet in appearance, this rich Merlot is packed with black berry, plum and cherry aromas, with savoury wafts of oak spice and smoked bacon. Sweet ripe berry fruits dominate the open, a concentrated wash of blackcurrant compote balanced by silky, savoury tannins, with hints of chocolate, coffee bean and vanilla.
Great on its own or superb with lentil and sausage casserole.
Coonawarra is one of Australia’s great wine regions, located in the heart of Australia’s Limestone Coast between Adelaide and Melbourne. The region is renowned for its terra rossa soil, a red clay produced by the weathering of limestone over many thousands of years and coloured by iron oxide, and for the outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot it produces.
