Hoosegg Mountain Dragon Merlot 2018


Merlot to hit you for six! The class of Philip Shaw shining through here.

Like the Seven Heaven Chardonnay, the high percentage of new French oak in this Merlot (90%) is integrated with the fruit superbly. Many wines showing such a high percentage would ordinarily clout you over the head with the wood - but not here. Barely noticeable, soft plummy fruit, dark cherries and super fine spices combine superbly with the oak that plays a mere supporting role. The drive and presence build with time in the glass. Above all, it's quite an enthralling Merlot that hums a sweet melody. Bravo!
