One of Woolworth’s own brands: Baily & Baily. This one available at Dan Murphy’s stores. Part of a range where Woolworth’s grab regional winemakers and get their name onto it. This one made by multi award winning Nigel Dolan.
Baily & Baily, Venture, Merlot, McLaren Vale, 2015
Big, chunky smells of baked plum, blackberry, Chinese 5 spice, cola lollies and asphalt. Sweet syrupy fruit profile with a relatively simple structure and plenty of chocolate wrapping. Sandy tannins fill out the finish. Merlot shouldn’t be this shrill or hot. If you’re really on a budget, there’s better for the price.
