I really like this. Beautifully turned out and good to drink.
About the Wine
The Mercer Malbec Noir is a great wine for people with Argentinian tastes but an Aussie guzzler budget.
This is a very moreish wine that'll compel you right from the first dip of the nose into the glass. The fruits are all dark and brooding, with plum and blackcurrant alongside some liquorice spiciness and floral notes of lavender and rosemary flower. The palate is silky smooth with tannins and acidity keeping each other in check, providing balance and energy. The finish is long and satisfying.
A great wine for steak nights or when you're after something a little different to Shiraz. A lovely wine all round.
