Lake Chalice The Falcon Merlot 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Dec-2023
Deep ruby-red with a purple hue, even colour throughout. This has a toasty, rich bouquet with charred wood aromas, blackberry, plum, violet and cedar. Full-bodied, aromas of blackberry and plum entwined with violet, cedar and nutmeg. The fruit shows rich flavour and vibrancy; the smooth tannin grip provides structure. This juicy Merlot possesses lushness and fine structure. Match it with beef brisket and lamb steak over the next 3-4 years. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Dec 2023 RRP $20.99
