Caravan Merlot 2020, South Eastern Australia

Merlot from Australia - Other
Review Date : 17-Oct-2022
Deep ruby-red, even colour throughout. The nose is full and attractive, with aromas of plum, red and blackberry melded with vanilla and spice. Full-bodied, aromas of plum, red and blackberry presented with weight, entwined with vanilla, clove and nutmeg. The fruit is succulent with good concentration and weight, and fine-grainy tannin added structure and spice. This is a generous Merlot with forwarding plush fruit and a fine grainy mouthfeel. Match with barbeque meat over the next 2-3 years. Fermented in rotary and head-down open fermenters over 7-9 days, a portion completed its fermentation in new and old oak barrels. After blending, the wine remained in new and old French and American oak barrels for a further 8 months. 14.5% alc. 17+/20 pts (86 pts) Oct 2022 RRP $24.99
