Apparently Merlot was the first wine sent into space. This one may be more accessible for the masses.
Taylors Estate, Merlot, Limestone Coast, Clare Valley, 2020
Big plugs of fruitcake and baking spices, plum jam, blackberry, Chambord™ , deep pine needle and smears of vanilla bean paste. Approachable and friendly. Just wants to give everyone a hug with good folds of sleek, plush dark berry fruit, an easy going sheet of tannins and spice. Finishes a touch short and warm, but not everyone wants a long hug.
Rating: 16.75/20 (87/100)
