2015 Taylors Estate Merlot



It’s a lively wine with plum and cherry fruit aromas as well as some seductive chocolate aromas. The palate is a joyous combination of plum, chocolate and spice all carried along by grainy tannins before a persistent finish. Great BYO wine as it goes well with both pizza and pasta dishes.

2013 Bird in Hand Merlot



Merlot is a funny old beast. In Australia it has suffered from a PR crisis but the best ones are worth
latching on to and worth shouting about. This one from Adelaide Hills’ legends Bird In Hand shows just how juicy and drinkable this style can be, especially with some barbecued ribs. It shows just the right amount of plum fruit and plush texture and finishes with supple tannins.
