Sallys Corner - Merlot 2013
The 2013 Merlot is bright red in colour and a lighter medium style of wine. It is very soft with a spiced cherry aroma and maraschino cherry, blueberry and vanilla on the palate. It is an unusual merlot as it resembles a pinot noir in some repects. It has a very soft mouth feel, is flavoursome and gives a full mouth feel. It has a dry finish.Technical information
