About

Great value Merlot here from the team at Norfolk Rise.

This is a juicy and medium bodied version of the variety. Often maligned for its lack of structure and washy feel, here winemaker Dan Berrigan manages to give Merlot a spine, some tannin to frame the succulent fruit from their coastal vineyard.

For under $20, this is a great buy. The perfect BBQ red at a guilt-free price.

What It Tastes Like

Nice varietal perfume here. Plums, red currants, tomato leaf and olive tapenade. Fuit is squeaky clean with a fresh lift through the mouth. Bell-clear plummy flavours ringed by chalky tannin. Finishes tight and fairly long. Juicy style with a bit of structure. Nice one.
