Weeping Sands Waiheke Island Merlot 2009

Merlot from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 14-Sep-2011
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, this has a fresh, fragrant nose of dark redcurrant and blackberry fruits, plums and cassis with a whisker of reduction. Medium-full bodied, this is elegant in expression with aromatic redcurrant and plum flavours, with some herb elements and fine-textured tannin grip running through the palate line. The wine has crisp clean acidity and a dry finish. Merlot fruit fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 15% new French oak. 450 dozen made. An elegant, cooler Merlot to match herb encrusted lamb rack over the next 4-6+ years. 17.0/20 RRP $31.50
