Type: Red Wine
Wine Region: South Eastern Australia
Tasting Note: Like an old bushie’s night time yarn, the Merlot is deep and mysterious. Dark ruby in colour but when the light hits, it glows with a crimson hue. Whiffs of blackberry and blackcurrant drift from the glass. It’s a bit smoky with a subtle mint scent, like a hopeful farmer getting ready for a Saturday night dance. When you taste it, you get a burst of rich blackberry and plum before it settles right down to a soft, silky finish. If you’re looking for that laid-back Aussie feel, this is it.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Goes great with buttered parmesan crostini or Calabrese pizza, or you can pair it up with a chicken en papillote (fancy talk for cooked and served in a paper wrapper) and garden vegetables.
