2014 Elderton Barossa Merlot



"Merlot is your friend" is the mantra at Cracka HQ as we convince people there’s a lot to be liked about this often ridiculed red. The Elderton’s are not afraid to embrace the grape and have turned out a Barossa version that is generous and round with heaps of flavour. Expect a core of plum and spice before a palate of rich fruitcake and red fruits that is influenced by cedary oak and has firm grained tannins on the finish.
