Trophy Gold FWDC 92/100

Description

Very rarely is a Merlot made that is a dense and rich as this, 2013 was hailed as the vintage of a generation due to its hot, dry, near perfect conditions. The Braided Gravels Merlot come off a single vineyard located right on the boundary of the Gimblett Gravels - famed as being 'best' sub-region of New Zealand for growing Bordeaux grape varieties. This wine is still young so should be decanted for 1-2 hours, but can be aged for 10+ years.

Smells

Very perfumed bouquet with dark plum, cheery and baking spice nuances.

Tastes

Very full, concentrated, dark and brooding with chalky tannins and great oak integration. Enjoy with hearty red meat, or cellar for 5-10 years.
