2013 Crossroads Winemakers Collection Merlot

Description

Merlot is a grape perfectly suited to the temperate maritime climes of the Hawkes Bay and this Crossroads Winemakers Collection is made with no expense spared from the landmark 2013 vintage, with the use of 72% new French oak a testament to the massive concentration of plummy fruit on show. A serious Merlot for those who love the grape, it will age well through 2023.

Smells

Blackberry liqueur and kirsch, with seriously intense and plummy notes and a hint of spice.

Tastes

Rich and full bodied with a creamy, chocolatey texture, with hints of liquorice and quite a firm tannin structure giving enough presence and gravitas to the opulent fruit. Enjoy it with smoky BBQ meats between now and 2023.
