2016 Yalumba Y Series Merlot

The Yalumba 'Y Series' strikes again with this medium-bodied, brightly fruited Merlot from South Australia. Black and blue fruits waft out of the glass, along with fleshy plums and a hint of meatiness, before the palate kicks in with juicy, plummy flavours, slinky tannins, bright acidity, and a fruit and savoury finish that will see this match well with lamb chops and thick-cut chips.

2013 Whistle Post Merlot

Whistle Post is a family-owned winery that is quite new to the winescape having been established in 2012. They are already turning out affordable and totally smashable wines that will please the crowd as shown in this smooth, medium-bodied merlot. Smells of ripe plums, red berries and subtle toasted cedar waft out of the glass, whilst the palate is elegant and fleshy fruited, with soft plummy flavours, gentle tannins, and a decent, fruit and savoury finish. Great with burgers!
