Surging with dark and lush bramble and blackcurrant the nose gives way to a supple palate. A subtle river of violet and cigar box aromas stream through the mouth and onto the long finish. The tannins are rich but elegant and very complete. A fragrant Merlot to decant and enjoy tonight or cellar for up to a decade.

Try with a gratin of grilled aubergine and spinach or a hearty roast lamb shoulder with kumara and parsnip.
