Rewild, Merlot, Murray Darling, 2021
Sweaty plum and cassis with hints of five spice, pencil shavings and char. Just medium bodied. Thinly flavoured with aforementioned purple/black fruit sweetness heading towards confected pastille. Minimal tannin and length. Perhaps would work with a lamb curry.
Rating: 16/20 (86/100)
