Taylors Estate Merlot 14%, 750ml
Ripe berry, rich fruitcake flavours and soft, velvety tannins. French and American oak impart dark chocolate, coffee bean and vanilla characters.
- Wine Colour : At release, the wine is a vibrant, youthful red with an intense red/purple hue.
- Wine Bouquet : At release, the wine displays lifted aromas of raspberry, cherry and violets with enticing vanilla bean, spice and cinnamon from quality oak maturation.
- Wine Palate : At release, the wine showcases layers of ripe, dark fruit alongside rich fruit cake characters. The mouthfeel is exactly as you would expect with a velvety softness. Oak maturation has delivered flavours of vanilla, mocha and subtle spice and the finish has a pleasing degree of elegance.
- Cellaring Notes : This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2019.
