Grant Burge Benchmark Merlot 2021, South Australia

Merlot from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 21-Feb-2023
Deep, full ruby-red, lighter on edge. The nose is full, packed with berry, plum and spice aromas, along with a hint of floral and herbaceousness. Medium-full bodied, aromas of red berry, plum and vine leaf melded with violet; clove and nutmeg expand a moderately long finish. Soft tannins leave a light grip and texture; balanced acidity provides a smooth flow. This is a well-rounded Merlot with succulent fruit, soft tannins and a balanced flow. Match with lamb burger and barbeque meat over the next 2-3 years. 13.9% alc, 6.1 g/l RS. 17/20 pts (85 pts) Feb 2023 RRP $14.99
