Reserve Merlot

Reserve Merlot 2007
Bronze Medal Air New Zealand show 2008
4 Stars "Very much an elegant wine with rich, ripe, luscious berry fruit very evident. These are in perfect balance with the smooth tannins and well integrated oak. Will keep improving but the fruit concentration makes it lovely now too." ( review)
Marie's Vineyard 2006
Densely coloured, shows sweet-restrained red berry/black currant fruit, elegantly mouth filling with fine balance, good concentration and a lingering velvety finish.

The entry is subtle, and the wine builds intensity as the palate progresses. The middle palate is again quite savoury, with lots of dark fruit and more herbal flavours, and a sweet edge to keep things relatively easygoing. The after palate starts to drop in intensity before drying, slightly rustic tannins kick in to carry the wine off with good length.  (Southern Hospitality Magazine Aug/Sept 2008)
