Brookfields Highland Merlot 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Nov-2022
Deep, bright ruby-red, slightly lighter on edge. The nose is full, elegant and enticing, with juicy red berry, cassis and young plum underlying delicate floral fragrance and well-proportioned delicate oak elements. Full-bodied, aromas of plum, red berry and cassis show purity, adorned by floral fragrance, nutmeg, cardamom and a hint of milk chocolate. The fruit is attractive and delicate with balanced ripeness and depth flows effortlessly with integrated acidity to a long, sweet-fruited finish. Velvety, fine-grained tannin lined a fine grip, leaving an exquisite mouthfeel. This well-farmed and well-crafted Merlot is harmonious with pure fruit, spice, elegant oak details and a velvety palate. Match with Wagyu flank steak and venison loin over the next 10 years. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $45
