Bigmouth Merlot 2017
Award Winner, Winery Exclusive
Visual: Bright and dark garnet colour with nuances of purple and dark cherry. Heavy and slow legs. Nose: Intense and aromatic bouquet of red and black berries, red and black plums, spicy vanilla oak with hint of undergrowth and wild berries. Second nose is creamier with nuances of wildberry pie, ripe blueberries and white pepper. Palate: Firm but elegant attack on ripe black fruits and mature, smooth tannins. Weighty midpalate filled with fruit and oak spice supported by a nice tension on minerality and freshness. Persistent final focuses on fresh berries, smooth texture with nuances of vanilla beans.
