Thyme Hill Te Unuatua Merlot 2021, Central Otago

Merlot from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 14-Dec-2023
Full, deep ruby-red with a purple hue, even colour throughout. This has a lush and powerful bouquet with aromas of black plum, blackcurrant, violet, tobacco leaf and spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of black plum and blackcurrant entwined with violet, tobacco leaf, nutmeg and clove. The fruit shows brightness and good energy, and uplifting acidity carries fine-grained tannins throughout the palate, lending a smooth, juicy finish. Match with braised beef brisket and beef Wellington over the next 5 years. 13.6% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Dec 2023 RRP $45
