Thyme Hill Merlot 2015, Central Otago

Merlot from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 21-Feb-2023
Deep, ruby-red with medium intensity, lighter on the rim. This has a spicy bouquet, complex, with subtle meaty notes overlying plum, red currant, an amalgam of spice and hints of tobacco. Medium-full bodied, aromas of plum and red currant enriched by smoky tobacco, clove, nutmeg and meaty nuances. Fine-grained, smooth tannin lightly coated the palate, alongside spices, integrated acidity and alcohol power lengthens to a smoky finish. This Merlot shows graceful ageing enhancement with power, and revealing cool climate subtleties and structure. Match with beef Wellington and char siu over the next 3 years. 14% alc. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Feb 2023 RRP $35
