Bohemian The Author Merlot 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 01-Mar-2023
Ruby-red, moderately deep, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly full, with penetrating tobacco, dry herbs, plum, blackberry and graphite aromas. Medium-full bodied, aromas of plum and blackberry entwined with dry herbs, tobacco and nutmeg. The fruit is bright and succulent with a good balance; smooth tannin extraction contributes to tobacco and spice complexity, lingering with a soft texture. This Merlot is juicy and nicely structured with bright fruit, richness and a fine palate. Match with beef burger and shepherd's pie over the next 3-4 years. 13% alc. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Mar 2023 RRP $35
