Soho Family Vineyards Revolver Merlot Blend 2022, Waiheke Island

Blended Red from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 08-Jul-2024
Full, deep ruby-red with a purple core, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is full, with aromas of plum, cassis, red berry, cedar, red florals and an amalgam of spice. Full-bodied, aromas of plum, cassis and red berry are succulent, entwined with cedar, clove, star anise and red floral details. Finely weaved, firm tannins provide structure for the succulent fruit; enticing acidity carries elegantly to a long, satisfying finish. This Merlot blend is harmonious, with enticing acidity and lush fruit on a fine tannin frame. Match with meat stew or steak over the next 8+ years. A blend of 45% Merlot, 21% Malbec, 16% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 3% Syrah, fermented to 13.5% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Jul 2024 RRP $60
