Natalie's Score: 91/100

Loaded with black fruit and smokey aromas and flavours. Full-bodied yet smooth with a savoury, meaty, satisfying mid-palate. A long finish.

Merlot food pairings: smoked meats, barbecue and rich, flavourful stews.

Aged 18 months in 95% new French oak.
A serious, complex and sturdy Merlot with dark berries and dusty sage on the nose which continue onto the palate, joined by elements of dark chocolate, black liquorice and black currants. Elegant with a velvety texture and dark, earthy undertones- the rich fruit character coupled with nice grippy tannins and a good dose of oak keep the alcohol and acidity in check, making this a fabulous food wine, best with smoked meats, barbecue and rich, flavourful stews.
