Majella Coonawarra Merlot 2010

This Merlot from Majella jumps from the glass. Absolutely superb it was!

Being only the fourth vintage despite the vines being planted a decade ago, it possessed a super juicy and vibrant nose. The aromas were very inviting indeed highlighted by some earthy characters which flowed onto the palate nicely. Some aniseed wafts across ever so slightly too.

The palate was juicy with the flavours well balanced. Very smooth throughout and the excellent length drew me in for more. Fourteen months on French Oak has added to the profile of the wine beautifully.

Very impressive with at least five years left in it.
