Patronus 'The Buck' Barossa Valley Merlot 2013

Winemaker Rob loves making BIG reds, with his specialities being dark Shiraz, spicy Grenache, and now, juicy Merlot!
Forget any lighter, jammy Merlots tasted in the past. This is a serious red from sheltered hillside vines ... with plenty of attitude and flavour! It’s also nice to know that this wine comes straight from the winery and is not sold in bottle shops. Zero whatsoever. Savour that thought as you sip this red slowly.

Loaded with red berries edged by smoky hints, this is plush, soft and decadently rich, dark Merlot from the Barossa. Pass the cheeseboard, please.
