The Sticks Merlot 2020, Marlborough

Merlot from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Apr-2023
Deep ruby-red with a purple hue, lighter on the rim. This has a savoury bouquet with blackberry, cassis, cedar and spice. Medium-bodied, blackberry and cassis aromas are fresh and soft, enriched with cedar and nutmeg spice. Smooth, fine tannins contribute to a fine structure and a milk chocolate character, spice hints and lively acidity lends an elegant closing. This red-fruited Merlot possesses a fresh drive on a smooth palate. Match with beef burger and pork ribs over the next 2-3 years. Fermented to 12.5% alc. 16.5/20 pts (83 pts) Apr 2023 RRP $ 12.99
