TarraWarra Estate K Block Merlot 2017

This label was first released in 2008 and is made from low yielding older vines.
Note, the bottle image shows the 2016, but nought has changed except the vintage year.

TarraWarra Estate, K Block, Merlot, Yarra Valley, 2017

Deep ruby-garnet in colour. Fragrant nose with plush purple and black berries, pencil wood, cooking chocolate, smoky incense hints, violet blossoms, soaked raisins and a little flinty reduction. Absolutely fan favourite stuff here yet providing complexity that is well disguised in plain sight. The tannins are lithe and provide a fine amount of knotty grip while charismatic black fruits slide effortlessly across all while bitter chocolate lingers. Well made.

RRP: $40
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
