Mercer Wines, Preservative Free, Rouge, New South Wales, 2021

Brick dust, camphor smoke, incense, cherry jam, bluestone, red apple, plum flesh, boysenberry, leather, dried kitchen herbs and some pine like resin. Fruit forward intially, then a closed, square-ish mid to back palate and a tacky sheet of tannin. Medium length with a dark herbal balance to the bright, pippy fruit. Tasty, accessable and well put together.

RRP: $22
Alc: 14%
Rating: 17.25/20 (90/100)
