Brookfields Burnfoot Merlot 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Nov-2022
Deep, fleshy ruby-red, slightly lighter on the rim. This has an enticing, gentle bouquet with penetrating aromas of plum and redcurrant melded with cedar and barrel spice. Medium-full bodied, redcurrant and red plum aromas intertwined with liquorice, cedar and cloves. Velvety tannins are fine-grained with a drying sensation, richly coating the palate, echoing liquorice and cedar elements. Integrated lively acidity underlines stony minerals and carries to a long, minerally closing. This Merlot possesses an elegant presence with red fruit, minerals and tight-knitted fine tannins. Match with roasted beef and lamb over the next 5-7 years. Fruit from the Tuki Tuki River, fermented to 13.5% alc. Vegan friendly. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $22
