Delta Merlot 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Jul-2023
Moderately deep ruby-red, lighter on edge. The nose is lush with some depth, aromas of plum, blackcurrant melded with leather hints and subtle spice. Medium-bodied, aromas of plum and blackcurrant are succulent, unfolding hints of leather and nutmeg. The fruit is juicy with good depth; supple tannins contribute a light grip and a toasty finish. This Merlot is straightforward, with succulent fruit and savoury depth on a fine palate. Match with beef brisket and burger over the next 3 years. Fermented with selected yeast, aged in tank and seasoned French oak for 8 months. 13% alc. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) July 2023 RRP $20
