Irvine Estate Merlot 2018


Irvine produce some great Merlots from their Eden Valley blocks. Here's another to add to the list.

Soft and silky smooth, it's an enjoyable drop indeed. Well balanced, dark berry fruit plus a lashing of raspberries early get your attention. Some boot polish like aromas stepped forward on the second day of tasting. Dark chocolate, cassis and some cigar box characters add further appeal. A soft earthiness and fine rattle of spice close things out. I'd happily recommend this to a Merlot fan.

Drink to eight years.
