Fruit forward Gisborne Merlot at the right price. Vinted by The Family Company in their typically generous style, this is a fleshy red with plenty of oomph in the spicy plum and anise profiles. A soft, easy drinker and another absolute winner from the proven 'Bird Series' range.
The winery writes "Dark berry fruit with hints of cloves and vanilla overlaid with memories of the forest floor. The Merlot grape like the Kiwi is an icon of humble, quietly powerful secretive charm".
Sam Kim writes "Sweetly ripe and inviting, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, thyme, toasted spice and hazelnut aromas, leading to a beautifully rounded palate offering succulent fruit intensity together with silken texture and fine tannins. Harmonious and delightfully appealing."
