Comments from Wine Buyer Steve
Our company prides itself on dealing with small to medium family operated wineries throughout Australia. We find that these small/medium operators put the most love and passion into their wines and the supplier of this Denmark Beach Merlot 2017 is no exception. The wine has great medium bodied flavours of dark plum and fine tannins. The subtle oak is not overpowering in any way. This is an elegant cool climate Merlot and very easy drinking.
My Score 91/100 – WACC Silver Medal.
