2020 Primo Estate Merlesco 13.0% 6x75cl £84.00
" 93 points. Mulberry colour with a pale rim. Ardent bouquet, damsons, autumnal leaves and toast. Rich flavours of red cherries, purple plums and baking spices. Bountiful, smooth tannin, the body shows moderate weight and leads to a clean finish" Amanda Yallop (TheRealReview)
A delicious Merlot from Joe Grilli that is only 13% alcohol.
Vibrant bouquet of blackberry, blueberry and cherry fruit. Juicy young forest fruits are balanced by good acidity and soft tannins on the palate. Deliciously refreshing and quaffable.
Merlesco combines fruit from their two McLaren Vale vineyards. The McMurtrie Road Vineyard on the valley floor enjoys sunny days and cooling evening breezes from the nearby ocean. The Angel Gully Vineyard is the highest vineyard in McLaren Vale and has a long, slow-growing season with cool nights and warm days on shale stone soil.
The fruit is picked at night to maximise freshness and spends just four months in old oak barrels to keep the fruit flavours fresh and young. This is a wine that is rich, soft, and full of juicy fruit.
Whether the long weekend is dry or raining, Merlesco will make you feel warm inside.
